When su's pam.d/ file was moved over from coreutils, it wasn't added to the backup array, as it had been in coreutils. Please do add it.

We also miss a su-l pam.d file.

$ su -

su-l? /etc/pam.d/su is included with util-linux.

"su -" works for me as well. I don't know about this other file that the other person reports missing.

I do notice that we are missing su's manpage, though. Upstream has such a page in their git repo, but I don't see it in the source tarball, which rather confuses me.

It doesn't confuse me at all, rather it's somewhat infuriating. I have a patch for that upstream. They neglected to add it to dist_man_MANS in login-utils Makemodule, which means it isn't built and installed, but it _also_ means it isn't implicitly included with the dist tarball. I've already extracted it from the git repo and will be pushing it with a new u-l package after I finish sorting out some uuidd business.
