The download source is no longer available. I don't see a tag for 2.3.11 on github. I did find though.

The default system-auth configuration passes the nullok flag to the pam_unix auth component.

I'm by no means a pam expert, but it seems to me that this would be equivalent to allowing password-less authentication to HTTP resources by default (assuming that this is the context pwauth is being used in the most).

Feel free to correct me / pitch in ...

Hi, since I'm using LDAP for Unix login and I have therefore PAM configured to use it in system-auth, I prefer using this in /etc/pam.d/pwauth:
auth include system-auth
account include system-auth
session include system-auth

Thanks, PAM support has been added.

I changed a few things to make pwauth work with PAM rather than /etc/passwd:

Modified patch:
New patch makefile.patch:

Note that after that, pwauth will require a /etc/pam.d/pwauth configuration. See INSTALL in src directory.

Thx for the fix!

MIN_UNIX_UID is now 1000

MIN_UNIX_UID is now 1001.
But my first user is 1000 and cannot be authenticated :'(
Can it be set to 1000 ?

This wasn't migrated from AUR3.

Patched so SERVER_UIDS and MIN_UNIX_UID match Arch defaults.

Feel free to take over maintainership if you want to.
