Description Wilson M. Michaels 2019-08-27 18:23:23 UTC
The primary group is specified as the default for "ACCT_USER_HOME_OWNER", but there is no mention of how that default value is determined.

Is it the first one in "ACCT_USER_GROUPS (REQUIRED)"?

Is a new variable needed to set the primary group?

Indeed I've failed to document this properly.  I will send a patch for review shortly.
