Nathaniel
MSDN says no socketpair.
Tom
Win32 doesn't have fork either, so test suite can't run on Win32 anyway.
Nathaniel
OK, will merge.
Greg
verto integration issues: KDC goes deaf on OS X. kadmind does on Solaris.
Nathaniel
Whether they report errors. Sometimes the underlying event fires in error conditions.
Greg
String attributes. Whether we should document conventions for keys. Maybe namespaces. Nico says plugin name should be part of key name. Registry?
Simo
Forcing vendors to register not good. Or maybe make prefix part of the API.
Sam
Wiki page.
Simo
Wiki won't be up to date if people don't know about it. Opposed to global prefix. Makes it harder for sysadmin who is casually experimenting with command line kadmin.
Greg
[ CCAPI ] several revs to protocol.
Sam
RPC protocol independent of API.
Greg
Only version on Windows is v2. Implementation deemed not good. New implementation v3. Client/server code platform independent. v3 only shipped on OS X.
Sam
Test suite claims to be woefully incomplete for odd definitions of "incomplete". It actually has a lot of tests.
Greg
Single-threaded. Locks. Callbacks. Operations might not return immediately. v3 Windows platform RPC. Kevin Koch used bidirectional RPC [ Windows RPC requires all RPCs to return. ]
Sam
Performance really dreadful.
Greg
Try porting DIRCACHE to Windows. Would give you collections.
Sam
GSS name to UID. Creates dependency on uid_t. Bad on Windows. Is uid_t even the right thing here.
Greg
pname_to_uid...
Will
Not sure about that one. Solaris internal, maybe?
Sam
If we keep it, would like to know when to expose it. Want it to return a local name instead.
