I am working on a package for net/samba3 (currently in beta and near
release candidate stage).
It needs MIT kerberos for Active Directory support. The docs say "The
Heimdal libraries will not work." I am packaging MIT kerberos (krb5-1.3).
(I need it on my Linux boxes.)
Should I call it "mit-krb5"? Or is "mit-kerberos" fine?
The official download is via a web-based form to agree to some things
first. I will have options to retrieve manually first. Some sites do have
MIT kerberos source downloads, but I haven't found recent release
My security/mit-kerberos is not finished yet, but I did use to build and
install it (via pkgsrc) under Linux.
Is it okay if r*, ftp* and telnet* commands are prefixed with "k", like
I will import both to pkgsrc-wip for testing soon.
