  * type:  defect => task


 I do not remember any discussions about not installing CrackLib
 when Linux-PAM is installed. CrackLib is a recommended dependency.
 The discussions about this subject were installing CrackLib with
 LFS. Applies ----> Oranges.

 As a courtesy, we try to provide instructions for Shadow in case
 CrackLib may not be installed, but the primary focus is not that
 situation, as it is recommeneded to have Cracklib installed.

 And, my sincere apologies for saying something you took personal.
 That was not my intentions. Hopefully, you now see the huge
 difference between *all* previous discussions and this situation.
