Escalated to Bugzilla from IssueTracker
Comment 4 Steve Grubb 2006-10-06 14:23:23 EDT
We want to get this pulled into beta2 release. Setting devel ACK flag.
Comment 5 Irina Boverman 2006-10-25 11:27:57 EDT
Added PM ack. Need QE flag.
Comment 6 Peter Vrabec 2006-10-25 11:59:50 EDT
the simple fix in spec file is needed:
%attr(0750,root,root)   %{_sbindir}/user*
%attr(0750,root,root)   %{_sbindir}/group*
Comment 10 Steve Grubb 2006-12-14 17:52:15 EST
[sgrubb ~]$ strace /usr/sbin/groupdel
execve("/usr/sbin/groupdel", ["/usr/sbin/groupdel"], [/* 46 vars */]) = -1
EACCES (Permission denied)

So, I'd say that the correct value is going into bash, but I do not think bash's
return code has to be the errno returned. I was thinking that all you can count
on is 0 for success and non-zero for failure.
