Re: [PLUG] Finding a /etc/group entry containing a user list

Pretty sure if you just do 'usermod -aG group1,group2,blahblah username'
it'll add the user to any group they are currently not a member. No need
to figure out who is not a member of the group.

But the original point is, I don't know what group to use. I'm looking for the group that already contains the most members of my list, so that a) I don't need to create a new group and b) I need to add the fewest users to that group to that it contains everyone from my list.
