Will
Congrats on 1.10. verify_init_creds? Are you planning on modifying to try all principals in the keytab?
Greg
Not committed to a specific timeline but was planning on it.

Platform assumptions

Tom
Platform assumption changes. Why do we need MSVC?
Greg
MSVC can use mingw DLLs. Some claims you can't mix them in the same lib/exe.
Tom
pthread-only library versus not
Will
Processes in Solaris 10 are multithreaded by default. Thread support now part of libc.
Tom
Python for normal build. Windows?
Greg
Making Windows build easy is not a high priority (said Sam).
Simo
Python 2.4... might be OK minimum.
Greg
Nightly requires 2.3 effectively.

Tom talks about version scripts etc.

Simo
Custom builds? Samba. Build farm full rebuild on each commit.

Early 1.11 planning

Simo
GSS proxy interposition in mechglue.
Greg
In-tree or out-of-tree?
Simo
Easier to build out-of-tree at the moment.
Greg
Framework for loadable mechs, but not interposition. Could add interposable mechs as a desirable.
Greg
Portability... maybe use macros to get some benefit of named initializers without requiring C99.
Simo
Gets ugly.
Greg
Do front ending [ GSS proxy ] for now, then discuss 1.11 possibility of interposing.
