       /etc/deluser.conf  - configuration file for deluser(8) and delgroup(8).

       The  file  /etc/deluser.conf  contains  defaults   for	the   programs
       deluser(8) and delgroup(8).  Each option takes the form option = value.
       Double or single quotes are allowed around the  value.	Comment  lines
       must have a hash sign (#) at the beginning of the line.

       deluser(8)   and   delgroup(8)	also   read   /etc/adduser.conf,   see
       adduser.conf(8); settings in deluser.conf may overwrite	settings  made
       in adduser.conf.

       The valid configuration options are:

	      Removes  the  home  directory  and  mail spool of the user to be
	      removed.	Value may be 0 (dont delete) or 1 (do delete).

	      Removes all files on the system owned by the user to be removed.
	      If  this	option	is activated REMOVE_HOME has no effect. Values
	      may be 0 or 1.

       BACKUP If REMOVE_HOME or REMOVE_ALL_FILES is activated  all  files  are
	      backuped	before	they are removed. The backup file that is cre
	      ated defaults to username.tar(.gz|.bz2) in the directory	speci
	      fied  by	the BACKUP_TO option. The compression method is chosen
	      to the best that is available.  Values may be 0 or 1.

	      If BACKUP is activated, BACKUP_TO specifies  the	directory  the
	      backup is written to. Default is the current directory.

	      A  list of regular expressions, space separated. All files to be
	      deleted in course of deleting home directories or deleting files
	      owned  by  the  user  to	be deleted are checked against each of
	      these regular expressions. If a match is detected, the  file  is
	      not  deleted.  Defaults to a list of system directories, leaving
	      only /home.

	      In other words: By default only files below /home  belonging  to
	      that specific user are going to be deleted.

	      Only  delete  a  group  if  there are no user who belong to this
	      group. Defaults to 0.

	      A regular expression which  describes  all  file	systems  which
	      should  be  excluded  when  looking  for	files  of a user to be
	      deleted. Defaults to "(proc|sysfs|usbfs|devpts|tmpfs)".
