kadmin-remctl 2.0

Not dead. Just very busy organizing my life, getting back to effectively managing my time, cutting down on distractions, and letting myself work on one thing at a time. All of that has meant that I've been hardly reading, but getting other things done. This too shall pass, but hopefully onto a small number of new things rather than back to trying to do everything at once.

Anyway, I released a new version of kadmin-remctl, last week actually, incorporating additional code that we needed for our guest accounts project. In the process, I significantly restructured the configuration and improved the capabilities for syncing with Active Directory. All of the three supported environments (MIT Kerberos, Active Directory, and AFS kaserver) are now optional.

And wow is this code ever ugly. I did some restructuring of that as well, so it's easier to follow at least, but this is crying out to have a modular structure with a set of Kerberos environment providers that you can selectively stack. And all the running of programs via Expect is just gross.

Oh well, time is limited, and time for making things pretty rather than just functional is very limited. Hopefully I'll get a chance to come back and do this right at some point.

You can get the latest version from the kadmin-remctl distribution page.
