The other day I noticed that IBM are now shipping OpenSSH Packages that include my password expiry patch. I knew they were going to do that but it's cool to actually see it. Hopefully the increased userbase won't find any extra bugs :-)

The patch includes other AIX login-related fixes (eg to correctly record logins when a non-password authentication is used) and I've been breaking it up into pieces for merging into the main tree. The current piece is the actual AIX password expiry component which is awaiting review. Following that will be support for platforms using /etc/shadow, then the AIX login recording fixes (which will need an extra monitor call to be added to OpenBSD's sshd).
