I was also hoping the discussion and ideas that come out of this might encourage others to submit patches. It is unlikely that I will have the time to handle all the PAM support myself and if this feature is going to move out of the experimental phase, it will need to be maintained.

We clearly have several people very interested in this work, so that
shouldn't be too difficult I hope...

Well, as we've seen in the past, several people interested enough to ask for and use a feature doesn't usually mean several people interested enough to generate usable patches in response to problem reports and maintain features over years and multiple releases.

I'm also the one who seems to be getting the CVE's (Critical Vulnerability something-or-other reports) before everyone else at the moment. If I know there are people I can forward those problems to and get patches back my response will be much less likely to be removing the code from CVS entirely. :)
