Re: RFC: Going the LDAP/Kerberos way with NetBSD.

- Provide yp compat for ldap. Simple and clean, and especially good in a migrating environment.

You mean something like the YP server frontend to an LDAP database in Solaris?
That's a good idea.


Of course, that's one of my points (even though it may not have been so clear). If the ldap server is not started things will just read the old files as always.

I'm not sure whether I like that. Such clever hacks tend to backfire badly.
No difference compared to keep the info in {s}pwd.db, just another location
of the databases.
