Waiting for Dererk to reply, here what I can say.

The situation has not changed so much, according to the upstream News



  * 2008-11-23: Bastien Nocera has been doing a lot of work on fprintd
    and has put out a request for testing in Fedora.

Please note, however, that the mailing list as well as the Git
repositories are still active:


So, basically, we should move to fprintd (and pam-fprintd).  When this
will happen, however, is still unknown.  If needed, I am all in favor of
a complete removal of pam-fprint.

Thx, bye,
Gismo / Luca
