EDUSERS(1)		    General Commands Manual		    EDUSERS(1)

NAME
       edusers - edit users list created by package

SYNOPSIS
       edusers [system [version]]

DESCRIPTION
       This command lets you safely edit the users list	created	by the package
       command.	It locks the file before launching the editor, hence  protect-
       ing  against  any  concurrent update by some package command that could
       arrive at the same time (by e-mail). The	level of protection this lock-
       ing  buys you depends on	the locking policy you have configured in your
       ~/.mailagent.

       If you are within a package source tree,	all you	need to	say is

	    edusers

       to edit the users file for that package.	In order for  that  particular
       feature	to work	properly, the package must have	been placed under dist
       control,	or at least the	packinit command from the  dist	 package  must
       have been run.

       Otherwise, you may specify a system name, and optionally	a version num-
       ber if that is not enough to disambiguate. Using	'-' will get  you  the
       lattest version available.

       In any case, there must be a proper setting of the distribs file	to use
       this command. If	that file is not accurate, the	package	 command  will
       not be able to produce a	users file anyway.

ENVIRONMENT
       The  editor  is	taken out of the EDITOR	variable if defined, then from
       the VISUAL variable, defaulting to /usr/bin/vi if none of the variables
       is set.

FILES
       ~/.mailagent	   configuration file for mailagent.
       Spool/distribs	   distribution	 list,	same  file as the one used for
			   mailpatch.
       System/.package	   file	created	by dist's packinit command to indicate
			   the root of the source tree for that	package.
       System/users	   list	of users of that system.
       Log/agentlog	   mailagent's log file.
