accumulated over 20+ years are not in a specific toolchain but in an
overall process.

That said, freeipa kicks nis{,+} in the tail :-)

James P. Kinney III

Every time you stop a school, you will have to build a jail. What you gain
at one end you lose at the other. It's like feeding a dog on his own tail.
It won't fatten the dog.
- Speech 11/23/1900 Mark Twain
