Bug Description

Binary package hint: libnss-ldap

(This is an issue as of libnss-ldap 261-2.1ubuntu1 in Ubuntu Jaunty.)

The nss_initgroups_ignoreusers line added by nssldap-update-ignoreusers(8) to the end of /etc/ldap.conf needs a comment at least indicating what added it. For those who keep tight control over their config files (like me), seeing this strange line added by who or what unknown is unsettling, and not in keeping with Debian/Ubuntu's typical transparency under /etc.

Hi Dustin. I just noticed you're the author of nssldap-update-ignoreusers(8) ^_^

Does this look like a reasonable thing to add?

Yep! That's the idea.

I would tack on the "(8)" man-section suffix to the program name, but at any rate, this is all that's needed.

Yes, I'm afraid. Joshua's patch has not yet been committed (as of Natty).
