If you are seriously considering trust solution - great. The only advice
I want to give is to think about how the final solution based on trusts
would look like. Then look at what you have and try to develop
procedures that would bring you from where you are to where you want to
be. There might be some "aha" moments there as trust solution would work
with latest SSSD and IPA but the older versions of Fedora/RHEL or other
platforms would not be able to participate so you need to think how to
deal with that scenario.

Also if you come across some problems and/or ideas please do not
hesitate to share. May be there is something we can do tomake the
migration smoother but we need to understand the issues first.
