shadow 1: source package in Ubuntu


shadow (1: lucid; urgency=low

  * Merged with debian unstable. Remaning changes (LP: #477299):
    - 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.

shadow (1: unstable; urgency=low

  * The "Tome des Bauges" release.
  * New upstream release:
     - Updated Basque translation. Closes: #535553
     - Fixed some translatable string. Closes: #525726
     - Fixed documentation of the short option for --mindays in passwd(1).
       Closes: #531983
     - Added support for shells being shell scripts without a shebang.
       Closes: #479406
  * debian/securetty.linux: Added Embedded Renesas SuperH ports.
    Closes: #535927
  * debian/securetty.linux: Added ttyS2 to ttyS5. Some extension card provide
    more serial ports, but that should be sufficient until there is a support
    for regular expressions. Closes: #534244
  * debian/patches/506_relaxed_usernames: Fixed typo. groupadd(8) should
    document the restriction on groupnames, not usernames.
  * debian/login.pam: pam_securetty included as a required module instead of
    requisite to avoid leak of user name information. Closes: #531341
  * debian/ Do not run shadowoff() and shadowon() in subshell.
    This also remove a dependency on bash (even though /bin/sh would have been
    sufficient). Thanks to Luk for spotting this.
  * debian/login.dirs, debian/passwd.dirs: Removed usr/share/linda/overrides.
  * debian/control: Standards-Version: bumped to 3.8.2. No changes.
