Running Ubuntu 12.04, I setup a private git server and created a group called git some time ago. Now I am following a guide to install gitlab and when it came to adding a user to the git group and create it, I saw that I already had it.
The command is this:
sudo adduser --disabled-login --gecos 'GitLab' git
taken from Gitlab installation Tutorial.
I would like to understand that command correctly. For me I thought I add a user to a group like this:
adduser user group
So what do
--gecos stand for?
