Comment 2 Sumit Bose 2021-08-26 06:31:04 UTC

sorry, I forgot to change the status.

From the 3 item mentioned on the change page the change to

 - the SSSD package was done in
 - the authselect package was done by the rebase to the latest release in

 - the glibc package was rejected by the glibc maintainers because they prefer that the ownership of the nsswitch.conf file will be moved to authselect which is planned for Fedora 36

Imo the missing change to nsswitch.conf is not a blocker because even if SSSD is not running calling the libnss_sss module to check if SSSD is running will only cause a minimal delay in the user and group lookups. On systems where authselect is called the order will be corrected by authselect. Please let me know if this is something which requires further discussion?

For the time being I'll switch the ticket to ON_QA.
