shadow 1: source package in Ubuntu


shadow (1: trusty; urgency=medium

  * Set our subuid and subgid range to 65536 uids by default.
  * Patch newusers to not add subuids and subgids to system users.
  * Patch useradd to not add subuids and subgids to system users and to
    regular users who don't fit between uid_min and uid_max.
    (This is needed due to adduser not passing --system...)
