No, we need to update as it is used to unlock auto-locked accounts. What

The underlying issue is: with a large scale userbase, some method is needed to know about inactive user accounts.
Users that don't send/recv mails, users that don't bind/kinit, whatever..

 * some kind of attribute is needed to store when was the last activity.
* activity would mean a kerberos auth or ldap bind, or an attribute modification.
 * this last time info needs to be replicated.

This way, a policy like 'purge accounts inactive by 1 year' can be implemented.
Or even get a sorted list of user by inactivity time.

I think this is a very nice functionality that FreeIPA should have.

Best regards.
