I'm not arguing with "no value is set in configuration -> use built-in
default". I do argue on having empty but present attribute because it
does not add anything useful for SSSD to decide on. And as it is not
adding anything useful, why there should be such difference at all?
This is the only question open I see in this design.
The list does not have to contain all available domains, therefore it
can also be empty. When a domain is not present in the list, a fully
qualified name must be used for users in that domain, therefore when
the list is empty, fully qualified name must be used for users in all
This might be useful to someone, and even if it wasn't, I still don't
think it warrants making a (IMO counter-intuitive) special case out of
the empty list.
I'm confused. I don't want to make this distinction between a missing
attribute and an empty one. You appear to be following the same path.
What we are arguing about then?
