Rationale: I usually avoid full sentences in short descriptions because
that would require a full stop at the end....but, indeed, I do not
regard this as a strong enforcement.

So I leave up to you to decide whether "Chained passwd backends not
supported" is better or not.

I think we'll get about 5-10 updates in one day or two, then another
10-15 in less than a week....and others probably after 1 or 2
reminders...and a few others several weeksn later, when I will have
beaten translators to death.

I would recommend a 7 days delay for updates.
