      * debian/watch: Add a watch file for shadow.
      * debian/rules, debian/ Do not recode the manpages.
        Keep them in UTF-8.
      * debian/rules, debian/control: login (>= 970502-1) was already provided
        by login in Hamm. libpam-modules (>= 0.72-5) was already provided by
        libpam-modules in Potato. libpam-runtime (>= 0.76-14) was already provided
        by libpam-runtime in Sarge (now oldstable). Simplify the dependencies.
      * debian/control: Move the dependency on libpam-modules from Depends to
        Pre-Depends. The login package is Essential, and without libpam-modules,
        login or su are not functional. Thanks to Steve Langasek for pointing this
      * debian/control: There's no need for a dependency on login (now that it is
        unversionned; see above) in the passwd package.
      * debian/control: The passwd's Replaces on manpages-de can be versionned
        again. The su(1) manpage was removed from manpages-de.
      * debian/securetty.linux: Added ttyUSB0, ttyUSB1, ttyUSB2, and MPC5200
        serial ports (ttyPSC0, ttyPSC1, ttyPSC2, ttyPSC3, ttyPSC4, ttyPSC5).
        Closes: #461374
      * debian/control: Change XS-X-Vcs-Svn to Vcs-Svn.  Update the link to the
        new repository layout.  Add a Vcs-Browser field.
      * debian/control: Added Homepage field.
      * debian/passwd.postrm: Removed (was empty).
    shadow (1:4.1.0-2) unstable; urgency=low
      * The "Bleu des Causses" release
      * Unversion the conflict with manpages-de for login, as it also provides
        a German manpage for su(1). Closes: #460508
    shadow (1:4.1.0-1) unstable; urgency=low
      [ Nicolas FRANCOIS (Nekral) ]

          + 411_chpasswd_document_no_pam
          + 494_passwd_lock
          + 417_passwd_warndays
        - Updated patches:
          + debian/patches/504_undef_USE_PAM.dpatch
            MD5_CRYPT_ENAB is back in login.defs to define the default crypt
            algorithm. It is tagged as deprecated and ENCRYPT_METHOD is
            recommended instead. New algorithms are also available.
            Closes: #447747
      * Debian packaging fixes:
        - debian/rules: compile with -W -Wall
        - debian/rules: large files are now supported by configure. Remove
        - 479_chowntty_debug was debian specific. Renamed to 579_chowntty_debug
        - Remove (not applied patch) 419_time_structures.dpatch. All its chunks
          are already applied upstream (with some differences), except one chunk
          which comes from 008_login_log_failure_in_FTMP. Fix
          008_login_log_failure_in_FTMP. This should fix some bugs causing invalid
          faillog entries on 64 bit architectures with 32 bit compatibility.
        - debian/securetty.linux: Add ttyS1. Better comments for the ttyS and xen
          consoles. Add a note for the devfs consoles. They are no more needed for
          most users. Closes: #454584
      [ Christian Perrier ]
