SRPM URL: http://people.redhat.com/jsafrane/migrationtools/migrationtools-47-1.fc8.src.rpm
The MigrationTools are a set of Perl scripts for migrating users, groups,
aliases, hosts, netgroups, networks, protocols, RPCs, and services from
existing nameservices (flat files, NIS, and NetInfo) to LDAP.
The migration tools were packaged as part of openldap-servers rpm. This is not good because:
- migrationtools have different upstream than openldap
- users may want to have openldap without migrationtools
- users do not know where to find migrationtools and they do not know it's part of openldap-servers.
- the maintenance of migrationtools can be independent on openldap
The migrationtools use slapadd and ldapadd internally, therefore the new package naturally depends on openldap-clients and openldap-servers. I will leave a short README.migration in openldap-servers, so users used to install openldap-servers will know where the migrationtools are.
You can find both new openldap and migrationtools packages on http://people.redhat.com/jsafrane/migrationtools/
rpmlint is clean.
URL tag should be http://www.padl.com/OSS/MigrationTools.html, move current
value of URL tag to Source0 tag.
Otherwise, on full review, it looks good.
second attempt, with fixed url:
Thanks a lot!
