Description Andriy Gapon freebsd_committer 2020-05-01 17:07:43 UTC
login.conf puts passwordtime in RESERVED CAPABILITIES section that has this preamble:
     The following capabilities are reserved for the purposes indicated and
     may be supported by third-party software.  They are not implemented in
     the base system.

But in fact it looks that passwordtime is implemented in the base for several years now.

Maybe this is a case where we can fix the code to match the documentation.

Do you really mean removing support for passwordtime from FreeBSD? :-)
