Thank you for the thread link.

So in the end neither thing happened.  The provides isnt in libpam-elogind
and the depends away from systemd-shim and libpam-systemd haven't been
added to the other packages.

FWIW antiX also does the modified depends approach for several packages
that we redo for our "nosystemd" repo.

Thank you.
