Kickstart will have a 'realm join' command, to join the machine 
during install to an AD or FreeIPA domain. This will take place using one time 
passwords or password-less joins to an AD or FreeIPA domain. 

== Detailed description ==
realmd is an on demand system DBus service, which allows callers to configure 
network authentication and domain membership in a standard way. realmd 
discovers information about the domain or realm automatically and does not 
require complicated configuration in order to join a domain or realm.

By integrating realmd with Kickstart and Anaconda, administrators will be able 
to add machines to a domain en-masse. This can be done without leaking 
administrative domain credentials into the kickstart fail.

In addition there will be a GUI for joining a domain during the anaconda 
install process.

This will be implemented as an Anaconda addon, to help keep the scope and base 
feature set of Anaconda in check.
