Name        : smbldap-tools
Product     : Fedora 13
Version     : 0.9.6
Release     : 3.fc13
URL         : http://gna.org/projects/smbldap-tools/
Summary     : User and group administration tools for Samba/OpenLDAP
Description :
In conjunction with OpenLDAP and Samba-LDAP servers, this collection is useful
to add, modify and delete users and groups, and to change Unix and Samba
passwords. In those contexts they replace the system tools to manage users,
groups and passwords.

Update Information:

This update fixes the broken configure.pl script and also includes a number of enhancements from upstream for the smbldap-useradd and smbldap-usermod commands.

    - remove a value from a multi-value attribute by -Z -name=value
    - remove an attribute by -Z -name
- drop UTF-8 patch, no longer needed

* Wed Feb  9 2011 Fedora Release Engineering <rel-eng at lists.fedoraproject.org> - 0.9.6-2
- rebuilt for https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_15_Mass_Rebuild

- 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)

- update source URL to reflect new upstream file layout
- drop upstreamed chown patch

  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
