           Summary: Glitches about documentation ch. 3 and ch. 9
           Product: Exim
           Version: N/A
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Windows
            Status: NEW
          Severity: bug
          Priority: low
         Component: Documentation
        AssignedTo: nigel@???
        ReportedBy: giovanni@???

In section 9.3, there is the following table:

1.2.3.4:           data for 1.2.3.4
192.168.0.0/16     data for 192.168.0.0/16
"abcd::cdab":      data for abcd::cdab
"abcd:abcd::/32"   data for abcd:abcd::/32


The explanation is really unclear, because on a first read I was sure there was
a bug, i.e. missing colon after line 2 and line 4, but after reading further, I
noticed that the double quotes delimit the key, so you don't even need the
white space. Correct? I think it should be reorganized.


About section 3.12, the "check_local_user" description is unclear about the
side effects. It states that it sets $local_user_uid, $local_user_gid, and
$home but it doesn't explain how it's related to "user" and "group" settings.

In chapter 15, the "check_local_user" description it states the the only side
effect is setting $home.

In the same chapter, the description for the option "group" states that it's
default is given by "check_local_user", so basically it means that it overrides
one of the side effects of the latter one. Is it correct to state that "group"
always sets $local_user_gid variable?
