adduser 3.118ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu

Changelog

adduser (3.118ubuntu1) disco; urgency=low

  * Merge from Debian unstable.  Remaining changes:
    - AdduserCommon.pm, adduser, adduser.8, adduser.conf.5: Allow uppercase
      letters in the names of system users. This is done by having a separate
      NAME_REGEX_SYSTEM configuration setting which applies when --system is
      specified. (Soren Hansen)
    - Add support for encrypting home directories:
      + adduser: Add --encrypt-home option, which calls ecryptfs-setup-private
        for the hard work.
      + doc/adduser.8: document the --encrypt-home option
      + debian/control: suggest ecryptfs-utils >= 67-1
      + deluser: remove all of /var/lib/ecryptfs/$user with --remove-home
    - extrausers support for adduser.

adduser: add and remove users and groups

 This package includes the 'adduser' and 'deluser' commands for creating
 and removing users.
 .
  - 'adduser' creates new users and groups and adds existing users to
    existing groups;
  - 'deluser' removes users and groups and removes users from a given
    group.
 .
 Adding users with 'adduser' is much easier than adding them manually.
 Adduser will choose appropriate UID and GID values, create a home
 directory, copy skeletal user configuration, and automate setting
 initial values for the user's password, real name and so on.
 .
 Deluser can back up and remove users' home directories
 and mail spool or all the files they own on the system.
 .
 A custom script can be executed after each of the commands.
