[Pkg-shadow-devel] Bug#352117: Bug "passwd: UNIX or Linux?" does not belong to passwd

reassign 352117 libpam-modules

The bug mentioned in this BR (be careful, there were several issues
reported which triggered cloned bugs) is:

# passwd
Enter new UNIX password:
Retype new UNIX password:

Looks like I'm connected to an AT&T UNIX machine. Better to say Linux
or better yet the hostname itself, in case one is ssl'ed several
layers thick and must be sure about what machine one is changing the
passwd of.

The "Enter new UNIX password" string belongs to pam_unix.so, not to
passwd itself".

This makes the suggestion less relevant as it sound logical to me that
the "pam_unix" PAM module actually talks about changing "UNIX"

Anyway, I hereby reassign this bug report, leaving up to
libpam-modules maintainers to decide what to do with it.
