This patch caused a regression that I'm going to fully explain in case:

  sudo doesn't check for sudo group

Status in sudo package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  In Ubuntu, sudo is built with --enable-admin-flag to create the
  ~/.sudo_as_admin_successful after being run the first time.

  At some point, to align with Debian, the group changed from "admin" to
  "sudo", so this no longer works. A recent bash upload has fixed
  printing the blurb about using sudo in the terminal, but since the
  flag file isn't being created, the blurb always gets printed.
