    55== Description
    66
    77This is a permission system-group provider for Trac. It asks UNIX / Linux system to which groups a validated user belongs. If one of the user's groups matches a permission group name created with `TRAC_ADMIN` permission add command, these permissions are enabled for the logged-on user.

     9After installing this plugin Trac is able to validate an authorized user 'auser' against the UNIX system group entries belonging to UNIX system user 'auser'. The benefit is that one can now create Trac groups named like system-groups and Trac will accept permissions attached to this group for a user, if the UNIX pendant of this username belongs to this group.
     10This helps for example PAM users to avoid managing group permissions twice, here no authz file is needed anymore.
