Contains the shared library for Linux-PAM, a library that enables the
local system administrator to choose how applications authenticate users.
In other words, without rewriting or recompiling a PAM-aware application,
it is possible to switch between the authentication mechanism(s) it uses.
One may entirely upgrade the local authentication system without touching
the applications themselves.

pam (1.1.3-6) unstable; urgency=low
* debian/patches-applied/hurd_no_setfsuid: we don't want to check all
setre*id() calls; we know that there are situations where some of these
may fail but we don't care.  As long as the last setre*id() call in each
set succeeds, that's the state we mean to be in.
* debian/libpam0g.postinst: according to Kubuntu developers, kdm no longer
keeps libpam loaded persistently at runtime, so it's not necessary to
force a kdm restart on ABI bump.  Which is good, since restarting kdm
now seems to also log users out of running sessions, which we rather
want to avoid.  Closes: #632673, LP: #744944.
* debian/patches-applied/update-motd: set a sane umask before calling
run-parts, and restore the old mask afterwards, so /run/motd gets
consistent permissions.  LP: #871943.
* debian/patches-applied/update-motd: new module option for pam_motd,
'noupdate', which suppresses the call to run-parts /etc/update-motd.d.
LP: #805423.
* debian/libpam0g.templates, debian/libpam0g.postinst: add a new question,
libraries/restart-without-asking, that allows admins to accept the
service restarts once for all so that they don't have to repeatedly
say "ok".  LP: #745004.
* debian/libpam-runtime.templates, debian/local/pam-auth-update: add a
new 'title' template, so pam-auth-update doesn't give a blank title
when called outside of a maintainer script.  LP: #882794.
