Re: pam-python: Python2 removal in sid/bullseye

According to <URL: https://bugs.debian.org/578650 > it was Eclipse
Public License v1.0 when it was initially registered.  I was not aware
of any relicencing, but see the d/copyright file now say AGPL.  No idea
when the change happened.

I am not aware that AGPL have such effect on desktop systems either, but
that is unrelated to your question.

I believe there is also a small pam module in debian-edu-config to ask
people to change passwords using the web interface.

Happy hacking
