+pam (1.1.2-1) UNRELEASED; urgency=low
+
+ * Name of option for minimum Unix password length has changed
+
+ The Debian-specific 'min=n' option to pam_unix for specifying minimum
+ lengths for new passwords has been replaced by a new upstream option
+ called 'minlen=n'. If you are using 'min=n' in
+ /etc/pam.d/common-password, this will be migrated to the new option name
+ for you on upgrade. If you have configured pam_unix password changing
+ elsewhere on your system, such as in a PAM profile under
+ /usr/share/pam-configs or in other files in /etc/pam.d, you will need to
+ update them by hand for this change.
