      Description

      From this mailing list discussion: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/help-cfengine/xlDnn4hVfpw

      I'd have liked I the documentation on the users promise to mention it.
      Something like where it currently says 'Platform native tools are used to
      create/modify/delete users (C api on Windows, and useradd usermod userdel on
      Unix, Linux and similar platforms).', maybe add a sentence like 'Users in
      external directory services (e.g. LDAP) will not be taken into account.' or,
      even simpler, 'Existence of users is determined by ???? on Windows and reading
      /etc/passwd on Unix, Linux and similar platforms.'
