The documentation states, "To do this Moodle also includes the relevant user accounts as well, in order that data consistency can be maintained when the backup is restored on a different Moodle site." -- I recently discovered that the term 'relevant' is slightly confusing. I was searching for an answer to the question "When I create a backup in Moodle 2+ does the entire user database become a part of that backup, or is it just the users within the course?" It was interpreted that 'relevant' does mean the users who are enrolled in a particular course and assumed that it meant all users enrolled in a particular course no matter their status (active, suspended, not active or otherwise). Could the documentation be updated to reflect exactly what relevant means?
