Hi all,

I would like to request that trunk be updated to the latest release
of the Shadow package ( There is an additional configure switch
that needs to be added to enable shadowed groups, as you all are already

This would make it a bit simpler on the BLFS side, as a patch for PAM
(that DJ submitted to the shadow folks and was accepted) would not be
required in the instructions. Things just seem to work a bit better
with PAM if we could update to the version of Shadow.

Thanks for considering my request.
