Ah OK. Another semantic difference. Doing it in phases is one thing and
delivering is another. Let us say we identified 10 things that needs to
be implemented. The problem is so huge that Ondrej would likely be able
to tackle only couple items from the list. So what should be do with the
rest if it is not possible to deliver until all 10 items are completed?
Ok, so most of the work here is in the KDC, so I think we should first
go to MIT, present the problem and see what htey think about the
solution we have in mind. I will try to have a preliminary discussion
With Tom and Greg about the general idea this week to see what they

Once that is done we can slice the implementation how we want in a
private branch until it is fully backed. MIT wouldn't, rightly so,
accept a half backed solution I would guess, but we also do not need to
try to rush patches in. Once cleanup work in the KDC has been done as
part of the 1.11 work I think these interfaces will change little so
there shouldn't be a risk of wasting too much time to follow upstream
while we work on one of these problems at a time.

IMO the work can be started and deferred till someone else can come back
and continue what Ondrej have started and bring it to the shape when we
are comfortable releasing it.
Absolutely, esp if we can start after he changes MIT plans to make in
1.11 or at least if we plan together so we know which internal
interfaces are going to be destabilized so we can plan ahead.

Ondra it time for you to sit down, read this thread thoroughly and craft
a design out of it.  Then you would be able to focus on a reasonable
subset of what is possible to complete in the remaining time frame.
Ok, will do. I would like to start with the login server scenario. It will be possible to use it later as a 'training field' for the fractional replication and help deciding what entries should and shouldn't be replicated.
