Description Mart Raudsepp gentoo-dev 2018-08-16 23:53:23 UTC
sys-apps/accountsservice-0.6.50 now supports passing more admin groups to configure for distro-specific setup. The main group is passed as wheel and that's good, but now we can make Administrator type accounts get more groups as well.
Do we have any other groups to add to administrators than wheel? Mainly "portage" group comes to mind.
The main effect for this is that useradd via accountsservice for administrator type accounts will get those groups for new accounts, as well as when an account type is changed (from normal to admin), then the extra groups are added to the user in addition to wheel.

CCing freedesktop-bugs for more visibility to the pondering and wider input from accountsservice desktop consumers
