Hi

Automatically configuring courier-authdaemon is not policy compliant for
the moment as one needs to edit the mentioned conffile in the process.

A solution might be to include some file if it exists in
etc/courier/authdaemonrc...

Cheers

Luk

Hi Stefan,

could you please comment on this bug? It's really important for us to fix 
#311188 for Lenny, so that upgrades from Lenny to Lenny+1 will work without 
problems for Debian Edu installations.

Thank you.

	Holger

What variables in /etc/courier/authdaemonrc do you need to change?

Hi Stefan,

Thanks for your feedback! (And sorry for not stating the obvious earlier :)

I've attached the cfengine file we use to modify the configuration. IMHO 
cfengine syntax is straightforward to read and understand, if you do have any 
question, please dont hesitate to ask, I'll happily explain every line if you 
want me to :-)

(As I am the one wanting something from you. But I'm quite sure you can easily 
figure it. But then, I do know cfengine since 7 years, so I might be 
biased ;)


regards,
	Holger

OK, my approach would be to include a file authdaemonrc.local at the end
of authdaemonrc (if it exists). The same for the other files like authldaprc.
What do you think about it?

Sounds good to me, esp. that you consider doing it for them all :)

Those are bash/perl/whatever scripts, so that variables defined in *.local 
overwrite the others?

Shout :-). I guess that all we need is a patch to include a file authdaemonrc.local at the end
of authdaemonrc (if it exists) and a short note for the README.Debian.
