Blueprint changed by Ro:

Whiteboard changed to:

Updated spec URL, added in the text from UDS

2007-01-31 kamion: Approved (as it stands, it's relatively simple), but
you're going to have to get a move on! authtool doesn't seem to have
made any progress since September, and Samba 3.0.24 hasn't been released
yet which may prove to be a blocker. Please keep me updated. Also, is
the "30 days" time estimate still accurate?

2007-02-31 svg: as laptops are becoming ubiquitious, it would be
important to make configuration as such that som form of caching is
involved (ldap cache, sync to local passwd, ..?) such that user is able
to log in when not connected to the corporate network

2009-04-30 ro: @svg: LDAP Cached Credentials solves these problems in a
quite elegant manner. So no problem here.
