Package: libpam-systemd
Version: 238-5
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

Dear Maintainer,

(This bug has been reported also against systemd-shim:
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=903295 )

libpam-systemd requires systemd-shim version >=10-4~.  No such version exists.

This would make systemd-shim unusable.
