Package: passwd
Version: 1:
Severity: wishlist


In order to have unprivileged lxc containers in debian, we need to
have a version of shadow uploaded that has subuid/subgid support. I
spoke with stgraber on irc about this and he indicated that the patches are already in on alioth, but it hasn't been uploaded yet. I'm curious what is needed to get that to happen?

If there are concerns about uploading to sid - perhaps an experimental package for a little bit?

thanks, you are awesome!
