+This is a help file for the pam_group module. It explains the need for
+pam_group and also the syntax of the /etc/security/group.conf file.
+1. Introduction
+It is desirable to give extra privileges to a user running a specific
+PAM aware application at various times of the day and on specific days
+or over various terminal lines by adding this user to extra groups.
+The pam_group module is intended to offer a configurable module that
+satisfies this purpose, within the context of Linux-PAM.
+2. the /etc/security/group.conf file
+Its syntax is described in the sample group.conf file.
+unrecognised rules are ignored (but an error is logged to syslog(3))
