Summary: Shadow password file utilities for Linux
This package includes the programs necessary to convert standard
UNIX password files to the shadow password format, as well as
programs for command-line management of the user's accounts.
        - 'pwconv' converts everything to the shadow password format.
        - 'pwunconv' unconverts from shadow passwords, generating a file
           in the current directory called npasswd that is a standard UNIX
           password file.
        - 'pwck' checks the integrity of the password and shadow files.
        - 'lastlog' prints out the last login times of all users.
	- 'useradd', 'userdel' and 'usermod' for accounts management.
	- 'groupadd', 'groupdel' and 'groupmod' for group management.

A number of man pages are also included that relate to these utilities,
and shadow passwords in general.






* Tue Dec 30 1997 Cristian Gafton <>
  - updated the spec file
  - updated the patch so that new accounts created on shadowed system won't
    confuse pam_pwdb anymore ('!!' default password instead on '!')
  - fixed a bug that made useradd -G segfault
  - the check for the ut_user is now patched into configure
* Thu Nov 13 1997 Erik Troan <>
  - added patch for XOPEN oddities in glibc headers
  - check for ut_user before checking for ut_name -- this works around some
    confusion on glibc 2.1 due to the utmpx header not defining the ut_name
    compatibility stuff. I used a gross sed hack here because I couldn't make
    automake work properly on the sparc (this could be a glibc 2.0.99 problem
    though). The utuser patch works fine, but I don't apply it.
  - sleep after running autoconf
* Thu Nov 06 1997 Cristian Gafton <>
  - added forgot lastlog command to the spec file
* Sun Oct 26 1997 Cristian Gafton <>
  - obsoletes adduser
* Thu Oct 23 1997 Cristian Gafton <>
  - modified groupadd; updated the patch
* Fri Sep 12 1997 Cristian Gafton <>
  - updated to 970616
  - changed useradd to meet RH specs
  - fixed some bugs
* Tue Jun 17 1997 Erik Troan <>
  - built against glibc
