           Summary: Review Request: mod_ntlm_winbind - NTLM authentication
                    for the Apache web server using winbind daemon
           Product: Fedora Extras
           Version: devel
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: normal
         Component: Package Review

Spec: http://dmitry.butskoy.name/mod_ntlm_winbind/mod_ntlm_winbind.spec
SRPM: http://dmitry.butskoy.name/mod_ntlm_winbind/mod_ntlm_winbind-20060328-1.spec

mod_ntlm_winbind module allows authentication and authorisation over
the Web against a Windows NT/AD domain controllers, using Samba on the same
machine Apache is running on.
It uses "ntlm_auth" helper utility to operate with local winbindd(8) daemon,
which are standard parts of the Samba distribution.

The same way Squid does NTLM authentication now.

Additional info:
There are already various implementations of NTLM auth for both Apache1 and Apache2. Unlike that, mod_ntlm_winbind is a "Samba upstream" implementation, specially designed for this purpose.

Too long time Apache1 was supported only. Last week support for Apache2 has appeared too, therefore it is possible now to use this module in Fedora.

There is no any source tarball. All the code (three files) is placed under appropriate directory on some FTP servers. Additionally, CVS access is possible too.

There is no version yet. (Perhaps sometime in the future it can become a part of Samba distribution?). Therefore I use YYYYMMDD as a version, with epoch "0". (It is the same way as was used for mod_auth_mysql module in the past). Not sure whether it is good.

There is no any docs, all needed words are present as a comment in the config file.
