Description Tomas Mraz 2006-02-01 15:45:50 UTC
Add man pages for:
system-auth-ac (to authconfig)

Comment 1 Tomas Mraz 2006-02-06 17:07:02 UTC
The man pages were added to their respective packages.

System-config-authentication and its command line counterpart authconfig

1. Configuration files of individual services for which no changes were applied
are not overwritten.

2. Authconfig doesn't change /etc/pam.d/system-auth directly but links it to
system-auth-ac. See also system-auth-ac(5).

3. There is a new configuration option which enables authentication of system
accounts (uid < 500) by network services as LDAP or Kerberos. This was enabled
by default in previous releases of Fedora Core. Now it is disabled by default.

PAM configuration improvements:
There is a new common configuration file for system configuration utilities
which are run through the userhelper wrapper. See config-util(5) and
system-auth(5) manual pages.

Thanks for the pointer ( and the usage of *docs* in your check-in.)

Is this hitting FC5 test3?  FC5 release?

Comment 3 Tomas Mraz 2006-02-06 17:42:42 UTC
It will be already in FC5 test3.

Comment 4 Karsten Wade 2006-02-15 01:04:32 UTC
Adding as blocker for FC5 relnotes inclusion.
