Description Alec Warner archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2007-04-21 05:15:21 UTC

gentooLocation is tied to my account; I don't see why I wouldn't be able to update it accordingly when I move.

gentooRoles is tied to ones role in Gentoo; I dunno, I move around a lot and I don't see why I shouldn't be able to update my roles accordingly (I can already update the respective project pages when changes occur).

Really the only problem with these two is a dev setting it to something stupid:

location: Bob's anus
gentooRoles: Gentoo's Dictator

or something like that.

I think the chances of that happening are remote (most users don't even know how to set ldap attributes, most people can't see ldap attributes...etc..).

I don't see a problem with this but devrel should comment too
Comment 2 Bryan Østergaard (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-04-21 17:53:26 UTC
I'd love to open that to devs but would certainly prefer to wait until we can have roll-call autosynced from ldap. Opening up ldap before that makes me worried that ldap and roll-call will get horrible out of synchronisation.

This has been enabled a while, we just didn't publicize it yet.
The userinfo.xml stuff is done now, so I'm commenting here and closing the bug.
