Package: ssh-krb5
Version: 3.8.1p1-7
Severity: normal

README.Debian still states
"Unfortunately, privilege separation interacts badly with PAM. [...]
and PAM keyboard-interactive authentication won't work."

but that doesn't seem to be true at all. keyboard-interactive
authentication _is_ enabled, and does work with privsep.

Moreover, if an ssh client that does not perform keyboard-interactive
authentication connects to the server, pam is not used for password

Even if this is considered appropriate behavior, I would think that it would
merit a mention in NEWS. I will even suggest that not supporting
PasswordAuthentication at all would be better than the current behavior.

The bug causing OpenSSH to not use PAM for password authentication has
been fixed in current OpenSSH packages and ssh-krb5 is now a transitional
package that installs the regular OpenSSH packages.
