Name        : slapi-nis

Version     : 0.25
Release     : 1.fc15

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 improves the speed at which the Schema Compatibility plugin can compute entries which contain attributes with large numbers of literal values, and entries which reference large numbers of other entries.

* Wed Jul 27 2011 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> - 0.25-1
- speed up building compat entries which reference thousands of other entries
  (more of #692690)
* Fri May 13 2011 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> - 0.24-1
- carry our own yp.x, so that we don't get bitten if libc doesn't include
  yp client routines
- we need rpcgen at build-time now

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update slapi-nis' at the command line.
