    Are you asking how to determine which users are in the group named "admin"?

    Group Administrator? I'm also a bit confused. root?
    As far as I know, there is no separate administrator for each group.

    I wasn't previously aware of this feature.

    Code:
    sudo cat /etc/gshadow
    The third field of each line is the list of group administrators.
