Hi,

users-admin profiles allow classes of users to be pre-defined
to make setting up certain types of users easier.

The attached patch is used in Ubuntu to add profiles to the package,
please consider applying it.


Thanks,

James

I see a small problem with adding this downstream, it would be hard to get those
files translated.

I've seen that there's a request for an accessibility profile upstream:
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=535063

Perhaps you could add one and forward this upstream? That way localization
wouldn't be a problem.

NB that I haven't tested this in Debian.

Best,
Emilio
