Description SpanKY gentoo-dev 2015-02-09 20:43:21 UTC
securetty isn't useful anymore on modern systems -- see referenced URL

unless anyone has any ideas as to when it'd make sense to have it enabled by default anymore, i'll disable it by default in shadow/pam/pambase

should be all set now in the tree; thanks for the report!
