The section entitled "Allow only the "wheel" group to run su" is a sentence and not a title.  Also, isn't this a part of the security considerations?  The subject isn't actually explained and we don't know the purpose of it. - [[User:KitchM|KitchM]] 00:46, 23 December 2009 (EST)
 
 
:I've attempted to add a brief explanation, and made the section a sub-section of "Security". Mentioning wheel is important, since UNIX and BSDs use this group with su, but Richard Stallman opposes the idea in GNU su. -- [[User:Pointone|pointone]] 12:24, 23 December 2009 (EST)

Shouldn't the article title actually be SU instead of Su? - [[User:KitchM|KitchM]] 00:46, 23 December 2009 (EST)
 
 
:I think it's best if it just refers to the binary, thus displaytitle=''s''u. [[User:Pwd|pwd]] 04:02, 23 December 2009 (EST)
 
 
::Interesting point.  I was thinking about the capitalization standard.  Wouldn't it override the binary notation format in these settings? - [[User:KitchM|KitchM]] 12:11, 23 December 2009 (EST)
 
 
:I've only ever seen it referred to as "su"; never "SU" (including on [[Wikipedia:su]] and the [http://www.gnu.org/software/coreutils/manual/html_node/su-invocation.html GNU man page]). I've changed the displaytitle accordingly. -- [[User:Pointone|pointone]] 12:20, 23 December 2009 (EST)
