I'd definitely keep the words "PAM" and "LDAP", but:

  Description: Pluggable Authentication Module for LDAP
   This package provides an interface between an LDAP server and the PAM
   user authentication system. Using it along with libnss-ldap allows LDAP
   to replace the entire /etc/passwd system, or alternatives such as NIS.

(Any other suggestions for "/etc/passwd system"?  My version at
least doesn't imply that LDAP replaces /etc/ld.so.cache...)

	sysadmin, and probably no clue about this particular package
