/etc/bash.bashrc checks for admin instead of sudo group

Bug Description

Since ubuntu 12.04 sudo group is used for granting root privileges. AFAIK admin group was retained for backward compatibility only, at least Server Guige for Ubuntu 14.04 says that one should use sudo group for root access.

Currently /etc/bash.bashrc check only for admin group. If the user belong to admin group, hint message on how to get root access may be printed. I think bashrc should check for sudo group also.
