General discussion

We welcome Luis Ressel (aranea@) as our newest committer! He has been contributing to Adélie for the past few months and brings experience in many fields, including s6.

PAM configuration has been slightly hardened, to ensure users without passwords are never allowed access to an Adélie Linux system unless the administrator explicitly enables such.


Luis Ressel (aranea@) added packages for wireless-regdb and iw.

A. Wilcox (awilfox@) updated SpiderMonkey (MozJS) to 60.5.2, and PolicyKit to 0.116. They also added packages for PPP, ModemManager, and NetworkManager.
