Quota question (repquota -a )

hey guys, when I do a repquota -a as root it give me a table. I understand most of this table, but what I can't figure out is in the second column, there is a set of -- what does this mean? Sample below...

User used soft hard grace
root -- 2333 0 0 0
jack +- 18720 10000 20000 7 days
jill -- 5000 10000 20000 7 days
rod +- 6667 10000 20000 7 days

What are the things after the user name? the +- or -- or ++ even???

To make it more obvious which users are over their quota allocation, the first minus sign ('-') after the username will turn to a plus ('+') if the user is at or over his soft quota limit.
