As far as I'm concerned, Debian PAM is basically forked from the
upstream already.  Upstream does not act on patches in a reasonable
time line; upstream does not respond to mail questions; upstream
releases versions of PAM that cannot work with applications like cron
or ssh

I do try to make sure that I have a number of patches open against
upstream PAM on the off chance they ever get reviewed.  I will try and
resync with PAM releases from time to time; I chose not to care about
0.77 but will hopefully care about the next PAM release.

If you think this sucks, you're right.  If you think you can do a
better job of getting upstream to listen than I, be my guest.
