Starting with 3.2.0 Samba will contain libnetapi, which is a C API
providing features required to join an Active Directory Domain. The
"Windows Domain Membership" YaST Module should switch to use this API
instead of calling the "net" command. This should make the Module much
easier to maintain

Stano, please, postpone. Minimal gain, it would requre to write a new
C++ agent, and use code which has not been used before for this
Let's stay with proven method and experiment with a new one for 11.2.

Ralf and Samba-Team: is this reject acceptable for you - or will this
have negative impact on AD integration?

#12: Ralf Haferkamp (rhafer) (2008-07-28 11:51:48) (reply to #11)
Jim, could you please answer Matthias' question I am not sure if
libnetapi does provide anything that we need in SLED10, which is not
provided by the "net" command.

#13: James McDonough (jmcdough) (2008-07-29 07:22:45) (reply to #12)
It is not advisable, but it is acceptable for now. Initially, it will
simply mean that we are more exposed to the net command format changes,
or any of the possible problems caused by running and interpreting
output from external commands.
Longer term, it should be done, as any new function will be implemented
first through libnetapi, and not necessarily exposed through the net
