[needs-packaging] FreeIPA

freeipa (Ubuntu)
Fix Released

Bug Description

This is a request for a package of FreeIPA, the Active Directory workalike being developed by the Fedora Project. They've had some packaged releases (http://freeipa.org/page/Main_Page), so now is the time to start seriously considering this. Ubuntu *needs* a full, easy to use directory server to be useful at the enterprise level, and FreeIPA looks like a good option.

I agree; there are many (unfinished) proposals for Ubuntu and a few (already) finished implementations from other sources (eBox, Mandriva Directory Server), but the FreeIPA project seems to bring together not only authentification and user/group management, but also Directory Services on a larger scale (think of Group Policies).

Plus, as a benefit, we wouldn't have to invent the wheel again, and the FreeIPA project seems like a thought-through solution on enterprise level.

I've uploaded python-nss and python-krb5 to the archive, certmonger and freeipa itself is left for the freeipa-client to work. The server needs further work.

Are there any plans to package the server as well?

yes, but not via a bugreport.. progress is slow there, the first goal would be to make the client more robust. Blocker for ther server is getting Dogtag 10, and more importantly all it's dependencies, packaged. See this blueprint


as you can see, not much has happened during this cycle, I'll probably just postpone most of the tasks for S/T.
