pam (0.99.10.0-1) unstable; urgency=low
* pam_rhosts_auth module obsolete
The pam_rhosts_auth module has been dropped upstream in favor of the
more featureful and better-maintained pam_rhosts module. To ease the
transition to pam_rhosts, a compatibility symlink has been provided to
map pam_rhosts_auth to pam_rhosts on your system; however, pam_rhosts
doesn't support all of the same module options and the compatibility
symlink will be dropped in a future release. You should update any
configs to use pam_rhosts instead of pam_rhosts_auth as soon as possible.
For information on using pam_rhosts, see the pam_rhosts(8) manpage.

pam (0.99.7.1-5) unstable; urgency=low
* Default Unix minimum password length has changed
Previous versions of pam_unix on Debian had a built-in minimum password
length of 1 character, and a minimum password length configured in
/etc/pam.d/common-password of 4 characters. This differed from the
upstream default of 6 characters. This has been changed, so the
default /etc/pam.d/common-password no longer overrides the compile-time
default and the compile-time default has been raised to 6 characters.
If you are using pam_unix but are not using the default
/etc/pam.d/common-password file, it is recommended that you drop any
min= options to pam_unix from your config unless you have stronger
local password requirements that the upstream default.
The password length 'max' option has also been deprecated in this
version because it was never written to work as suggested in the
documentation. If you are using pam_unix but are not using the default
/etc/pam.d/common-password file, you should remove any old max= options
to pam_unix from your config as this option will be considered an error
in future versions of pam.
