Current list of changes: for Shadow 4.0.10 to be release on 6-27-2005

*** general:
- mkpasswd: removed,
- userdel: now deletes user groups from /etc/gshdow as well as /etc/group.
  Fix by Nicolas François <nicolas.francois at centraliens.net>.
- usermod: when relocating a user's home directory, don't fail and remove the new
  home directory if we can't remove the old home directory for some
  reason; the results can be spectularly poort if, for instance, only
  the rmdir() fails. Patch prepared by Timo Lindfors <lindi-spamtrap at newmail.com>.
- su: fix syslogs to be less ambiguous. Use old:new format instead of old-new
  because '-' can appear in usernames
- removed not used now libmisc/setup.c,
- login: use also UTMPX API instead UTMP on failure (login was affected for this
  when shadow was builded without PAM support)
  patch by Nicolas François <nicolas.francois at centraliens.net>
- login: the PAM session needs to be closed as root, thus before change_uid()
  http://bugs.debian.org/53570 http://bugs.debian.org/195048
- login: made login's -f option also able to use the username after -- if none
  was passed as it's optarg
- login: check for hushed login and pass PAM_SILENT if true,
- login: fixed username on succesful login (was using the normal username,
  when it should have used pam_user) http://bugs.debian.org/47819
- remove using SHADOWPWD #define so now shadow is allways builded with shadow
  passwowd support,
- chage: rewrite for use getopt_long(),
- updated translations: ca, cs, da, fi, pl, ru, zh_TW.
*** documentation:
- most of the man pages now are generated from XML files so in case submiting any
  chages to this resources please make diff to XML files,
- chfn: give more details about the influence of login.defs on what's allowed to
