One bug I noticed (and I would just fix, but I wanted to first
understand what made you say that) is:
"When using the passdb backends smbpasswd or tdbsam, it is not possible
to automatically import groups from /etc/group during the
classicupgrade. This has to be done manually afterwards."
This isn't meant to be the case. It is meant to work, but it uses the
*new* systems /etc/group file, if you move between systems, except when
using ldap (where it forces the ldapsam:trusted option, so that we don't
use nss for groups).
What we could do is permit a 'group' file to be put in the dbdir on the
new server, and somehow use that to get group memberships.
That said, I still wish to say thanks for your hard work on this, it is
really important work!
