#159 Map system groups to Webmin groups

Danny Sauer

I'd like a way to map a Webmin group's membership to a System group. If I, for example, have a Unix group called "admins" and I want anyone in that group to automatically be added to a Webmin group which I may also call admins (or maybe something else). It'd be nice if this was implemented such that I could use current group membership merged with OS group(s) membership, so perhaps I could have a few Webmin-only users in a group the traditional way, and some system users (which are mapped to Webmin users, although just for authentication in the current setup) also added in. With dups removed. :)

While the ultimate goal here can be reached within Webmin in a disciplined environment where all user management is done through Webmin, our environment (which surely isn't unique) uses other mechanisms for user provisioning. If Webmin could automatically pick up new users from the OS level based entirely on their group membership, it'd save us a big step in our user provisioning (and deprovisioning) process...
