Name        : slapi-nis

Summary     : NIS Server and Schema Compatibility plugins for Directory Server
Description :
This package provides two plugins for Red Hat and 389 Directory Server.

The NIS Server plugin allows the directory server to act as a NIS server
for clients, dynamically generating and updating NIS maps according to
its configuration and the contents of the DIT, and serving the results to
clients using the NIS protocol as if it were an ordinary NIS server.

The Schema Compatibility plugin allows the directory server to provide an
alternate view of entries stored in part of the DIT, optionally adding,
dropping, or renaming attribute values, and optionally retrieving values
for attributes from multiple entries in the tree.

Update Information:

This update adds additional functionality:
* Adds new deref_f and deref_rf format specifiers which perform
  checks using filters while resolving values are now available
  for use by both the NIS server plugin and the schema 
  compatibility plugin.
* A set of entries managed by the schema compatibility plugin can
  now be configured to appear outside of (or independent of) a 
  container created by the schema compatibility plugin.

This update fixes this bug:
* Schema compatibility entries are no longer returned as results
  for a search from a base DN which has no associated backend.

* Thu Nov 18 2010 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> - 0.21-1
- update to 0.21
  - schema-compat: don't look at standalone compat containers for a search,
    since we'll already have looked at the group container
* Thu Nov 18 2010 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> - 0.20-1
- update to 0.20
  - add a deref_f function
* Wed Nov 17 2010 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> - 0.19-1

* Wed Nov 17 2010 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> - 0.18-1
- update to 0.18
  - add a deref_rf function
  - schema-compat: don't respond to search requests for which there's no backend
  - schema-compat: add the ability to do standalone compat containers
* Wed Nov 17 2010 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> - 0.17-6
- revert that last change, it's unnecessary
* Thu Nov 11 2010 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> - 0.17-5
- build against either 389-ds-base or redhat-ds-base, whichever is probably
  more appropriate here
