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.

adduser (3.113+nmu3ubuntu2) saucy; urgency=low
* Move ecryptfs-utils from recommends, to suggests. (LP: #1188108)
Adduser has moved from required to minimal set, and thus started to
pull ecryptfs-utils and cryptsetup into minimal installs, which is an
undesired effect.
2012-10-24 - Steve Langasek <steve.langasek@ubuntu.com>

* 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: recommend ecryptfs-utils >= 67-1
+ deluser: remove all of /var/lib/ecryptfs/$user with --remove-home
