Package: hurd
Version: Feb 2000
Severity: normal


"The password server protocol is broken, because
it sends a uid instead of the name. The nice ugids_* functions in
hurd/libshouldbeinlibc that take care of it all have uid-based interfaces
too, so a bunch of stuff needs to be rearranged to fix it properly."
