accountsservice (0.6.40-2ubuntu10) xenial; urgency=medium
* debian/patches/change-own-data-inactive.patch:
- let inactive user sessions update their own datas without 
triggering authentification dialogs. Indicator-messages does that to
indicate to the greeter that the user received messages, which
currently leads to auth dialog to be stacked in the locked session,

* Drop 0014-pam-pin.patch and 0015-pam-pin-ubuntu.patch, along with
the associated libpam-pin package.  Added a Breaks on the old
package to get it off systems too.  These patches were from an
upstream bug but they never made progress there.  And we never used
the module in Ubuntu Touch like we planned either.  So I'm dropping
it before the LTS is released.
