shadow 1: source package in Ubuntu


shadow (1: karmic; urgency=low

  * Resynchronise with Debian. Remaining changes:
    - Ubuntu specific:
      + debian/login.defs: use SHA512 by default for password crypt routine.
    - debian/patches/495_stdout-encrypted-password: chpasswd can report
      password hashes on stdout (Debian bug 505640).
  * Rework 495_stdout-encrypted-password to cope with chpasswd using PAM.
    It's looking a bit ugly now ...

shadow (1: unstable; urgency=low

  * The "Chevrotin" release.
  * New upstream release:
     - Fixed typo in the French vipw usage. Closes: #528486
     - Fixed failure to delete an user (wrongly detected as still logged in).
       On Linux, userdel checks if the user has some running processes.
       Otherwise, it still check with utmp if the user is logged in and check
       if the process indicated by utmp is still running to avoid
       mis-detection of logged-in users. Closes: #528060
     - newgrp and sg return the exit status of their child. Closes: #529897
     - Updated patches:
        + debian/patches/506_relaxed_usernames
  * debian/login.defs: Removed comment about MD5_CRYPT. MD5_CRYPT_ENAB is no
    more used by chpasswd and newusers.
  * debian/patches/*: Updated patches to the new quilt and shadow versions.
  * debian/patches/506_relaxed_usernames: usernames with a slash will not only
    break one option. Move to the discussion on the usernames.

shadow (1:4.1.4-3) unstable; urgency=low

  * The "Banonet" release.
  * debian/login.pam: Really ignore failures when the module do
    not exist. Closes: #528673

shadow (1:4.1.4-2) unstable; urgency=low

  * The "Banon" release.
  * debian/rules, debian/passwd.linda-overrides, debian/login.linda-overrides:
    Removed linda-overrides files.
  * debian/rules: Install the lintian overrides with dh_lintian.
  * debian/control: Raised dependency on debhelper (>= 6.0.7~) for dh_lintian.
  * debian/compat: Raised to 6
  * debian/login.postinst: Install /var/log/faillog during initial installs
    only. This permits admins to disable failed logins recording.
    Closes: #488420
  * debian/login.pam: Ignore failures when the module do not
    exist. A required makes login fail when the module does not
    exist (e.g. on architecture without SE Linux support). Closes: #528673

shadow (1:4.1.4-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * The "Chambérat" release.
  * New upstream release:
     - Updated Czech translation. Closes: #525658

     - Updated Korean translation. Closes: #524719

     - Updated Russian translation. Closes: #527636
     - passwd: Report password properties changes if the password is not
       actually changed. Closes: #525967
     - Fixed lastlog. 4.1.3 only reported empty logs. Closes: #524873
     - Remove patches applied upstream:
        + debian/patches/403_fix_PATH-MAX_hurd
     - Updated patches:
        + debian/patches/008_login_log_failure_in_FTMP
        + debian/patches/401_cppw_src.dpatch
        + debian/patches/429_login_FAILLOG_ENAB
        + debian/patches/463_login_delay_obeys_to_PAM
     - pwck and grpck warn when the shadowed and non-shadowed files contain
       an entry for the same user or group and the non shadowed file password
       field is not 'x'. Closes: #501869
       Other topics raised in this bug were fixed previously.
  * debian/securetty.linux: Added Freescale i.MX ports. Closes: #527095
  * debian/securetty.linux: Added some local X displays. See LP #104957. But
    only a limited set of displays were added.
  * debian/rules, debian/passwd.newusers.pam, debian/passwd.chpasswd.pam:
    Install the newusers and chpasswd PAM service configuration files.
    newusers and chpasswd now use PAM to update the passwords.
    Closes: #525153
  * debian/login.pam: Updated support for SELinux. Closes: #527106

    of >= 0.4.3-1)
  * debian/control: Added ${misc:Depends} to the passwd's Depends and login's
