append group instead of replacing current ones

In "Setting up a Subversion Server" (http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/view/svn/server/svnserver.html) in section 1 "Setup Users, Groups, and Permissions" the command to add the svn user to the group svntest is:
usermod -G svntest svn
which replaces svn user's current groups with group svntest. In my opinion it should be:
usermod -G svntest -a svn
which appends svntest to its groups. This change is "important" because the document is intended for multiple repositories so svn user shall be added to multiple groups.
I have to say that i'm quite new to linux so i'm not sure 100% this is correct, but i have already lost my sudo privileges with this command :)
a big thank you for your hard work it's very useful!
