I'm the one that has been working on the ypserver for over a year. The
major missing part is now yppush. I haven't had time since I released
the latest version in late may. When I resumed looking at ypserv last
week I noticed that changes in rpcgen has caused some modules in 
rpc.yppasswdd and ypserv to fail when compileing. This is due to changes
in the include files. But I think that will be easy to fix.

In yppush I still have problems with rpc callbacks.
