[Pkg-samba-maint] Bug#721514: winbind: Winbind authentication broken after upgrade from Squeeze to Wheezy

Package: winbind
Version: 2:3.6.6-6
Severity: Normal

Dear Maintainer,

I use winbind for authentication. On upgrading from Debian 6 to Debian 7, pam authentication
via winbind stopped working.

Previously, installing winbind would include the necessary libraries/setup for pam and nss. Now
libpam-winbind and libnss-winbind are required for an equivalent setup. 

This change has been documented in the package description, however notice that dist-upgrade will break
authentication should be included during the upgrade.
