RE: OpenLDAP, Heimdal, kpasswd crash (ITS#2386)
Thanks for the note back. I will follow up with the Heimdal folks.
Yes we would absolutely love to have all of our clients capable of doing
SASL/GSSAPI. Unfortunately I think it will be quite a while before we are
there. We have _many_ clients that simply can't do SASL/GSSAPI ranging
from mail clients to vendor applications.
BTW, OpenLDAP 2.1.x is great! Thanks for all the work you all have done!
