Samba 4.13 freezes soon, so I wanted to again propose adding things to
the deprecated list.
Yes, we add things to this list far faster then we remove the options,
but the job for anyone wishing to remove features starts with this
point, marking and announcing to our users that we are not going to
keep every Samba option and feature forever.
So I present to you this MR:
No code is removed of course, and of course we are not going to remove
code that FreeIPA needs, but even in between all that I think this is
(pdb_ldap is not impacted, I've dropped those references compared to my
Parameter Name Description Default
-------------- ----------- ------
domain logons Deprecated no
raw NTLMv2 auth Deprecated no
client plaintext auth Deprecated no
client NTLMv2 auth Deprecated yes
client lanman auth Deprecated no
client use spnego Deprecated yes
If I get time I also hope to fold the only-used-by-attackers LMv2 into
"raw NTLMv2 auth", so we can remove both in 4.14.
