Summary     : User and group administration tools for Samba/OpenLDAP

In conjunction with OpenLDAP and Samba-LDAP servers, this collection is useful

groups and passwords.

* Thu Dec  9 2010 Paul Howarth <paul at city-fan.org> - 0.9.6-1
- update to 0.9.6
  - new tool: smbldap-grouplist (list LDAP groups)
  - smbldap-useradd, smbldap-usershow, smbldap-usermod:
    - change default encoding of givenName and sn to UTF-8 (bug #11717)
    - new option: -X (input/output encoding, defaults to UTF-8)
    - new option: -O (localMailAddress attribute)
    - changed option: -M (now sets only mail attribute)
    - home directory is now chowned as $userUidNumber:$userGidNumber
      to avoid race conditions (bug #11721)
    - use gecos as displayName if givenName and userSN not provided
      (bug #14517)
  - smbldap-passwd:
    - new option: -p (allow root to set password from STDIN without
      verification, e.g. using a pipe) (bug #11964)
    - change userPassword, shadowLastChange and shadowMax individually e.g. no
      shadow class or user may not have rights (bug #15052)
  - smbldap-groupmod: allow deletion of users from groups without a defined
    samba group SID)
  - remove references to smbldap_conf.pm
  - fix Z option in smbldap-useradd (custom LDAP attribute) (fixes #590429)
  - alphabetically reorganize options
  - fix several mis-spellings and typos in smbldap-useradd
- update source URL to reflect new upstream file layout
- drop upstreamed chown patch
- update remaining patches to remove fuzz
- drop dependency on openldap-servers (for /usr/sbin/slappasswd) as the
  default configuration is to hash passwords directly rather than calling out
  to slappasswd (#609056)
- drop dependency on samba-common (for /usr/bin/smbpasswd) as the default
  configuration handles the functionality directly rather than calling out to
- drop execute permissions from configuration/migration scripts in %doc
* Wed Jun  2 2010 Marcela Maslanova <mmaslano at redhat.com> - 0.9.5-7
- mass rebuild with perl-5.12.0
