Default A new user management tool

Hi Mathias,
hi all,


i miss always the possibility to import/export
user and group settings from/to a file. I wrote for my own
use a little python scripts that creates alls users, groups
and smb shares.

It would be great, if your new tool support this.


Just my 2 cents,



Carsten

Is not "user name" better? For me, that has been using Unix-based system
for over 20 years, that is far more easy to understand. Although, I have
to admit that "login name" is better than "short name". I would never
have known what "short name" was used for, if I saw it on "create a new
user account" screen. So, as the dialog says "user account", "User name"
would also be the logical choice.

How is the account type intended to be used? One of the better things
with Linux/Unix/etc. is the differentiation between "normal" users and
the administrator, i.e. the root account. But I may be missing something
obvious here?

Yes, "user name" is better. Good idea.
