If the sudoers file supported full regular expressions, you could do
something like this:
Cmnd_Alias RESOLV = /usr/bin/@(gedit|vim|vi|whatever)
But it doesn't so you can't.
In situations like this, I always take the hard ass approach and say
"ok, you can either edit it with VI or GEDIT. That's it." If they
don't know VI, they can use GEDIT. Or maybe use VI and NANO.

Subject: [sudo-users] HOWTO put many editors easily
If I have to allow users to edit the file /etc/resolv.conf, I do this:
Cmnd_Alias RESOLV = /usr/bin/gedit /etc/resolv.conf, /usr/bin/vim
Is there some way to create something like this:
Cmnd_Alias RESOLV = /usr/bin/gedit OR /usr/bin/vim OR ... OR ...
to specifically put many editors, 3 or more?
