Do you use the "Create a New User" custom admin page
(https://dev.archlinux.org/devel/newuser/), or go into the "Add User"
(https://dev.archlinux.org/admin/auth/user/add/) page?

And as far as perm groups go, the future is now- that is what actually
matters these days. I'm going to make that a bit more straightforward
in the future so we don't have too much information duplication like
we do now.
