I'll be pushing a package into testing this weekend by the name of
'pambase'. The name and basis for this package comes from Gentoo. I'd
like for this to live in [core] and become a dependency of PAM (as well
as absorb /etc/pam.d/other).
pambase will provide a few common PAM configuration files which other
services can draw from (essentially implementing an ancient FS ). For
example, it shrinks a useful /etc/pam.d/login down to the following:
auth required pam_securetty.so
auth include system-local-login
account include system-local-login
session include system-local-login
In the short term, util-linux will be rebuilt to enable binaries from
its login-utils subdirectory: login, chfn, chsh, vigr, vipw, and newgrp.
They'll disappear from shadow, and I suspect that over time, more of
shadow's utils will re-appear in util-linux (with the benefit of a more
active and responsive maintainer/community).
In the long term, other utilities are encouraged to adopt these common
Until I actually release the package, I've left a source tarball on
gerolde, for interested parties to review .
