Hi Steven,

I found an issue regarding your most recent commit (65d8897100012b948e29b9d3ee71b468df6afac4) for the shadow package.

The packages shadow-su and shadow-passwd are now causing file conflicts in case the corresponding BusyBox-commands are compiled into the image (passwd is included by default).

As an example, libpq depends on shadow-utils which would install all of the shadow packages including shadow-passwd which makes package installation fail:

Collected errors:
 * check_data_file_clashes: Package shadow-passwd wants to install file /usr/bin/passwd
	But that file is already provided by package  * busybox
 * opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package shadow.

Do you have any idea how to fix this? This bug prevents to install the seafile packages I have recently contributed. :(
