nss-pam-ldapd (0.9.4-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* upload to unstable
* new upstream release:
- also handle password policy information on BIND failure (this makes it
possible to distinguish between a wrong password and an expired
- fix mapping the member attribute to an empty string
- any buffers that may have held passwords are cleared before the memory
is released
- increase buffer size for passwords to support extremely long passwords
(thanks ushi)
- increase buffer size for DN to support very long names or names with
non-ASCII characters
- log an error in almost all places where a defined buffer is not large
enough to hold the provided data instead of just (sometimes silently)
- logging improvements (start-up problems, login failures)
* add signature checking option to watch file
* add a debian/upstream/metadata file
