Hello All,

I am not sure quite how to go about this. Is there any one on this
list that adds features for money?

If so, how much would it cost to get full cross forest trusts
implemented, including the SIDs checking? I need kerberos, unix ids
(winbind?), etc.

One requirement for payment beyond the above is that it is integrated
into the main tree.

Thank you,

P.S. Sorry that you are getting this twice Andrew.
