[nycbug-talk] Group Password Support

  I have no need for this , but I was wondering if any of the BSD's
supported group passwords. I ran into a typo in a group file and
someone had the GID in the password field.
The FreeBSD man page for group states" The passwd field is an optional
encrypted password.  This field is rarely used and an asterisk is
normally placed in it rather than leaving it blank."
So the two obvious questions are how would I set a group password, and
how would one use it ?
