Question about /etc/group



Hello,

I have a simle detail question:

Sometimes users are registered as being secondary members of the group that is their primary group - why is that so?

For example:

User "uucp" has as primary group the group with gid 14:

  uucp:x:10:14:uucp:/var/spool/uucp:/sbin/nologin

And group 14 is group "uucp". However, the user is also listed as being a secondary member of that group:

  uucp:x:14:uucp

Which is pretty pointless. Or not?

Best regards,

-- David
