The system-config-users packages provide a graphical utility for administrating users and groups.

Bug Fixes

BZ#736037
Prior to this update, expiration dates at or before January 1, 1970 were not correctly calculated. As a consequence, the system-config-users utility stored expiration dates off by one day into /etc/shadow. This update modifies the underlying code so that account expiration dates are calculated and stored correctly.
BZ#801652
Prior to this update, a string in the user interface was not correctly localized into Japanese. This update modifies the string so that the text is now correct.
BZ#841886
Prior to this update, the system-config-users utility determined incorrectly whether to set an account as inactive if an expired password was not reset during a specified period. This update modifies the underlying code to check for this condition by hard-coding the value which indicates this condition.
All users of system-config-users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
