Am I misunderstanding, or was Andrew suggesting
that PDC improvement should be put on hold while
the team works on AD functionality?
I'm of the opinion that a good, workmanlike
kerberos implementation able to work with AD
is the most desirable single item for 3.0, and
that there is a community of folks, like myself,
that would like to jump from a security=user,
unix-centric configuration straight to a security=kerberos
unix-centric configuration (;-))
