Ian, I don't think there is a separate bug tracker for autofs? Once I open
the sssd ticket, should I just create one on bugzilla.redhat.com
it with the request to enhance autofs to support the new functionality once
it is implemented? Or would it be better to open a Red Hat support case and
have somebody there open the bug?
There isn't, the mailing list is used for upstream requests.
But the truth is that RHEL users have far more demanding environments so
RHEL tends to drive autofs development.
As far as logging a case against RHEL goes either way will work but if
you can navigate front line support and get them to escalate it without
too much effort that is the recommended process.
The risk with logging a bug directly in Bugzilla is that it is
necessarily the lowest priority for me because people with subscriptions
are meant to log cases with support and those bugs and things that come
it via other supported avenues have to be given priority.
