pam-krb5 2.0

For some time, I've been helping Sam Hartman maintain the Kerberos PAM module in Debian (the version linked against the MIT Kerberos libraries). It had accumulated quite a few bugs, and I'd started making significant modifications to fix them. Then Andres Salomon fixed some larger problems, adding support for credential reinitialization, and made a couple of new upstream releases since Frank Cusack stopped releasing new versions. But he ran out of time and I had more changes that I wanted incorporated and that we're also going to want to use at Stanford on platforms other than Debian.

So, I gave in and decided to take over upstream maintenance, using bzr so that Andres can collaborate easily (and since learning new revision control systems is generally good). I've been working on that off and on for the past few months, and today I finally finished up the last bits of packaging and documentation (and teaching my release scripts about bzr). So now a 2.0 release is out and I've uploaded new packages to Debian which can now be stabilized for the etch release.

You can get my release from the pam-krb5 distribution page.
