I see that already the doc I made for TWikiAdminGroup is wrong. There is a setting in configure that defines who you are when you sudo login. The doc says to login as TWikiAdminGroup because that is how it was when I wrote the doc.

When you actually do the sudo - it suggests the login name. Why not just make this static in the sudo login form so we do not have to burden people with this info?

They have to use the name set in configure. And it is already suggested. Only the password should be needed as user entry.

This also simplifies the doc that can simply say - login using the configure password.

Note also Item4246 and Item2108 that are very related.

I proposed better names for the config settings in Item2108 but did not get feedback.

Changed the headline.

This bug item now only covers the doc I wrote on TWikiAdminGroup which I need to change.
