Can anyone on the list enlighten me as to why [my PAM patch] is not applied?

Because I'm the only developer interested enough to try it and I've been very busy and haven't managed to get around to it despite the best of intentions.

Okay, your patch applies and compiles fine and I'm testing it now, but now that I finally read through the patch properly, I have a few concerns.

1.  Your patch needs a ChangeLog entry.

2. It would be nice to support OTPs. I'm thinking that a server which received an empty password could send a "send me a real password" to a properly equipped client. I don't need to see this yet, though.

3. I think I would also like future clients to accept a "-p" option to always request the password from the command line rather than looking in ~/.cvspass so that users have the option to use a password not either stored in ~/.cvspass or passed in on the command line. I will write this soon.
