       users - file server user list format

       The  permanent  file  servers each maintain a private list of users and
       groups, in /adm/users by convention.  Each line in  the	file  has  the


       where  name  and	 leader are printable strings excluding the characters
       and and members is a comma-separated list of such strings.  Such a line
       defines	a  user and a group with the given name; the group has a group
       leader given by leader and group members given by  the  user  names  in
       members.	 The leader field may be empty, in which case any group member
       is a group leader.  The members field may be empty.

       Lines beginning with are ignored.

       The id in a line is an identifier used in the on-disk structures	 main‐
       tained  by a file server; there should be no duplicate ids in the file.
       In fossil(4), ids are arbitrary text strings,  typically	 the  same  as
       name.  In older Plan 9 file servers, ids are small decimal numbers.  In
       those, a negative id is special: a  user	 with  a  negative  id	cannot
       attach to the file server.  The file /adm/users itself is owned by user
       adm and write protected to others, so it can only be changed  via  con‐
       sole commands.
