Regarding that particular change, can you add more explanation to
the code and changelog about *why* pam_fp is changed to pam_fprint?
bnc#? URL?
well, do you need a bugreport for this ? I can easily create one.
I've been updating libfprint to support the fingerprint reader
on my Thinkpad T410 and have been sending changes for hwinfo
and libfprint in that course. pam_fprint is not based on the same
source as pam_fp but recreated for the same purpose by the same
developers that are maintaining libfprint at
and should replace pam_fp. Last part was adding pam_fprint support
to the pam-config package (I was never aware each pam module needs
specific support there ...) and I'm pushing all these changes to factory now.

I mean, replacing one string with another can have many meanings:
1) changed "baeutiful" to "beautiful" (typo)
2) changed "ethereal" to "wireshark" (project renamed upstream)
3) changed "imgmagic" to "ImageMagick" (lifted 8 char restriction)
4) changed "portmap" to "rpcbind" (different package, same goal, bnc#...)
5) changed "GNOME" to "KDE" (strategy change, bnc#...)
and it is reasonable to provide a link to details for 4 and 5.
