Looking at the help output/man pages of usermod, I find this:
-G, --groups GROUPS list of supplementary groups
-a, --append Use -a option to append the user
So the -a should append said user to the list of groups. If I attemp the
following command I get an unexpected result:
$ sudo usermod -a nogroup username
Usage: usermod [options] LOGIN
And it just continues to list the help pages. Hmmm! I guess I'm reading
it wrong, but which part?
