Summary

The current User admin tool from GNOME isn't really suited to managing larger numbers of users, as one would get at a school or classrooms. What's needed is a simple, extensible user management tool.

Release Note

Having a good user management tool will make handling classroom situations much better for "non-professional" admins.

Rationale

Current tools:
