Re: Warning (error?) message while starting dbus

I tried to start hal which needs dbus, but there seems to be a problem

Starting dbus.
Unknown group "netdev" in message bus configuration file

What does this mean?

That netdev error is maybe related to 
  <!-- Allow everything, including access to SetHostName to users of the group 
"netdev" -->
  <policy group="netdev">
    <allow send_destination="org.freedesktop.Avahi"/>
    <allow receive_sender="org.freedesktop.Avahi"/>

Bug in the avahi package; the message itself is harmless, the intent is to grant privileges to users in the 'netdev' group which doesn't exist on NetBSD. That should probably be changed to 'wheel' or 'operator' on NetBSD.
