Advise on the Samba4/OpenChange stack
 
I've been trying to package the OpenChange stack (OpenChange, Samba4 and
Heimdal) for Fedora, and I'm between a rock and a hard place on the
packaging of Heimdal (Samba's choice of Kerberos infrastructure). I can
either include it in Samba4 (as we do upstream), and break the 'no
included libraries' rule, or I can propose Heimdal as a package, and
conflict with krb5-devel and krb5-debuginfo.

Similarly, the non-library parts of Samba4 do conflict with Samba3.
(but I'm happy to simply not provide those parts of the package, if it
comes to it).

Does anybody have any suggestions about the best way forward?

Separate library packages. If it's just the -devel that's an issue,
placing Heimdal's headers in a subdirectory that samba4 can access by
using a -I/usr/include/heimdal, for instance, would work.



Similarly, the non-library parts of Samba4 do conflict with Samba3.

Are Samba3 and Samba4 commandline compatible for these? If so it's
possible that alternatives is what we want to use here. These are the
criteria:


1) command line compatible
2) app that the sysadmin should deal with, not end users.

Sadly it does not in reality. Having more than one kerberos
distribution's headers installed has been known to cause major pain,
even if the headers can be nominally separated.

No, they are not compatible.
