This is more of a clarification question than a problem.
I'm not a sysadmin, but out of curiosity I went through our config files and encountered this behavior.
This is on a CentOS 5.8 system
LN XX: <groupname>:x:<id>:<uname of another user>:<another user>:,<me>
As you can see, users are not delimited by ',' but ':', and before my username is both ':,'
I am defaultly a member of a different group.
The folder I am writing to and files/directories in it have permissions (775)
and its owner is another user from the group mentioned before.
The question I have is:
Why can I write to this folder? /etc/group is declared differently than in documentation, so I should be other, shouldn't I?
Is there other place/way to add user to group.
