Reverse domain names in form "0/" are now

Ticket: https://fedorahosted.org/freeipa/ticket/4143
Patches attached.

I add Petr2 to CC, to inspect RFC issues, with allowing '/' in IPv6

I think the validation should be more strict. IPv4 reverse zones should
allow slash only in the label for the last octet (i.e. 0/ is
valid, 0.1/25.168.192 is not). IPv6 reverse zones should not allow slash
at all.

I havent found anything about IPv6, RFCs don't forbids it.

AFAIK the RFCs do not forbid anything, but we do validation anyway, so
we might as well do it right, otherwise there is no point in doing it.

OK, I leave there only IPv4

1.0/ is also valid, it could be used to CNAME

Yes, obviously. It's 1.0.1/25.168.192.in-addr.arpa. I'm concerned about.

This can give a very strange positions of / in FQDN

Optionally, I could permit only 1 slash in domain name, but I have to
inspect first if user can do something useful with subnet of subnet in
DNS, like 1.0/25.128/25.168.192.in-addr.arpa
Multiple slashes has to be allowed, without limitation to last octet. Imagine situation when split subnet is later split to even smaller pieces.

Guys, do not over-engineer it. IMHO this validator should produce a warning is something is not as we expect but it should not block user from adding a record.

We have had enough problems with too strict validators in the past and IMHO warning is the way to go.

The slashes in domain names are referenced as the best practise in RFC,
there are not strict rules.

+def _cname_hostname_validator(ugettext, value):

Can you name this _bind_cname_hostname_validator, so that it is clear it
is related to _bind_hostname_validator?

I will rename it

+        #classless reverse zones can contain slash '/'
+        if not zone_is_reverse(normalized_zone) and
(normalized_zone.count('/') > 0):
+            raise errors.ValidationError(name='name',
+                        error=_("Only reverse zones can contain '/' in

This should be handled in _domain_name_validator. Validation in
pre_callback should be done only when the validation depends on values
of multiple parameters, which is not this case.

I will move it

+    def _reverse_zone_pre_callback(self, ldap, dn, entry_attrs, *keys,

Rename this to _idnsname_pre_callback and you won't have to call it
explicitly in run_precallback_validators.

I will rename it

+            if addr.count('/') > 0:

I think "if '/' in addr:" would be better.

I will change it

-def validate_dns_label(dns_label, allow_underscore=False):
+def validate_dns_label(dns_label, allow_underscore=False,

IMO instead of adding a new boolean argument, it would be nicer to
replace allow_underscore with an argument (e.g. allowed_chars) which
takes a string of extra allowed characters.

But I have to handle not only allowed chars, but position of the chars
in the label string too.

Why? Is there a RFC that forbids it?

My point is, adding a new argument for each extra character is bad,
there should be a better way of doing that.

I agree, but for example: "_" should be at start (it is not required be
at the start in IPA), "/" and "-" in the middle.

Updated patch attached.
Patch for tests is the same as previos.
