I have finished [ ha! ] the login clone I've been working on.
The package includes replacements for login, su and passwd.
It has some interesting feature you might want to play with,
here is a short list:

	- Shadow password file.
	- Password aging.
	- Login-time environmental variable setting.
	- Optional mandatory passwords for blank entries.
	- Restricted root logins.
	- Optional mailbox checking.
	- Optional message of the day printing.
	- .hushlogin functionality.
	- Last login time accounting ala' lastlog.
	- su use accounting.
	- Login time setting of ulimit, umask and nice.
	- Terminal messages configurable on or off.
	- Subsystem root logins.

All of the more modern logins have most these features, but
now you can have all of them.  And since it is source, you
can add your own.

Anyone who wants to beta test a copy  [ first couple requests
only ] send a reasonable address, and I'll ship you a copy
of the shar file.  It currently compiles cleanly on Xenix,
so let's hear from other systems.

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM

UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO v IBM.
