+.SH "NAME"
+mkhomedir_helper \- Helper binary that creates home directories
+.SH "SYNOPSIS"
+.HP \w'\fBmkhomedir_helper\fR\ 'u
+\fBmkhomedir_helper\fR {\fIuser\fR} [\fIumask\fR\ [\ \fIpath\-to\-skel\fR\ ]]
+.SH "DESCRIPTION"
+.PP
+\fImkhomedir_helper\fR
+is a helper program for the
+\fIpam_mkhomedir\fR
+module that creates home directories and populates them with contents of the specified skel directory\&.
+.PP
+The default value of
+\fIumask\fR
+is 0022 and the default value of
+\fIpath\-to\-skel\fR
+is
+\fI/etc/skel\fR\&.
+.PP
+The helper is separated from the module to not require direct access from login SELinux domains to the contents of user home directories\&. The SELinux domain transition happens when the module is executing the
+\fImkhomedir_helper\fR\&.
+.PP
+The helper never touches home directories if they already exist\&.

+Written by Tomas Mraz based on the code originally in
