Description ΒΆ

        It's nice to be able to add a custom package that provide the "right" ntp.conf file for your setup. Maybe we can add instead an option to point to a different template? Anyway I guess we can have /usr/share/ipa on the client as well, would that be a problem?

    I would want to put it in /usr/share/ipa/client to avoid two packages spamming the same directory. Of course, that means that neither package owns /usr/share/ipa (which I guess is already the case). And by custom package, do you mean a separate package from freeipa-client or a rebuilt package. A separate package wouldn't work because it could overwrite the existing template and if you rebuild the package you can change the python. Any packaging experts have opinions on this? Basically - I agree with the goal, I just don't think we have time right now.

Just open a ticket for a following release so we don't forget, let's go on, now. (The solution is to probably put it in /etc/ipa/templates and mark them as configuration, so a different package can just modify it or something like that. Asking people to modify python is not something I like).
