= Proposed Self Contained Change: Domain Controller Set Up Through Cockpit =

Change owner(s): Stephen Gallagher <sgallagh at redhat.com> 

With Fedora 21, the rolekit project now provides a public D-BUS interface for 
creating a Domain Controller based on the FreeIPA project. This Change will 
track adding this capability to the Cockpit management console of Fedora 

== Detailed Description ==
Providing users with a simple graphical user interface to set up a FreeIPA 
Domain Controller will provide a fast way to bootstrap an enterprise-grade 
Linux environment. Once the Domain Controller is made available, it becomes 
easy to manage single-sign-on between systems (and Cockpit instances), control 
user authentication and authorization centrally and manage DNS entries (among 
other things). 

== Scope ==
* Proposal owners: The Cockpit user experience needs to be written and added 
to that upstream project. It needs to be connected to the local rolekit 

* Other developers: N/A (not a System Wide Change)
* Release engineering: N/A (not a System Wide Change)
* Policies and guidelines: N/A (not a System Wide Change)
