     225          In very simple installations where there is only one user, it
     226          may be easier to just edit the <filename>/etc/sudoers</filename>
     227          file directly.  In that case, the <varname>secure_path</varname>
     228          entry may not be needed and using <command>sudo -E ...</command> can
     229          import the non-privileged user's full environment into the
     230          privileged session.

     234          The files in the <filename class="directory">/etc/sudoers.d</filename>
     235          directory are parsed in sorted lexical order. Be careful that entries
     236          in an added file do not overwrite previous entries.
