Re: SEAM change password protocol different?

I'm wondering if Debian moved things around.

For me that man page is in section 5, not section 4 (which is 
machine-specific device drivers on NetBSD).

In any case there is no entry for kpasswd_protocol in krb5.conf(5) in 
either the NetBSD preinstalled version or in 0.6.  Is it described in 
-current or in some other page?

Does it now?  I guess I should have looked harder.  That's what I 
thought --- password change was standard while kadmin wasn't.
