[Pkg-shadow-devel] Bug#787502: uidmap: newgidmap man page synopsis wrong

Johannes Schauer josch at debian.org

Package: uidmap
Version: 1:4.2-3
Severity: normal


The man page for newgidmap says:

newgidmap pid gid lowergid count [pid gid lowergid count [ ... ]]

but the --help option says:

usage: newgidmap <pid> <gid> <lowergid> <count> [ <gid> <lowergid> <count> ]

Please fix this discrepancy to reflect the actual behaviour.


cheers, josch
