Recently, some support for KDC resource group compression was added to
Samba by commit e3fdb2d
The commit message explicitly mentioned "domain-local groups" only,
while the Microsoft description of the feature
also mentions "universal groups, and groups associated with security
Also, there were some relevant commits which enable a bunch of
previously disabled group tests, but several tests are still disabled
for Heimdal, and even more for MIT Kerberos.
Q1: What is the status of KDC resource group compression in Samba? Are
there any plans to include it in any upcoming release?
Q2: Does anyone works on SID history groups compression in the meantime?
If not, then I'm willing to implement it, but I'm new to the Samba
codebase, and so need some pointers as to what parts of the system may
be affected and, ideally, some high-level description of the feature in
the Samba context.
