---------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2004-395
2004-12-01
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product     : Fedora Core 3
Name        : shadow-utils
Version     : 4.0.3
Release     : 38
Summary     : Utilities for managing accounts and shadow password files.
Description :
The shadow-utils package includes the necessary programs for
converting UNIX password files to the shadow password format, plus
programs for managing user and group accounts. The pwconv command
converts passwords to the shadow password format. The pwunconv command
unconverts shadow passwords and generates an npasswd file (a standard
UNIX password file). The pwck command checks the integrity of password
and shadow files. The lastlog command prints out the last login times
for all users. The useradd, userdel, and usermod commands are used for
managing user accounts. The groupadd, groupdel, and groupmod commands
are used for managing group accounts.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

This shadow-utils changed the behavior of useradd and other related utilities
that allowed you to specify either a group or user name. As per POSIX,
names with dots, dashes, and underscores are now allowed, as well as mixed
case and userids that begin or consist entirely of numbers.
