LDAP is used as the standard mechanism for authentication; you don't want to create user accounts for each and every system you build in your environment (and have the users maintaining passwords).

SPDX files contain all the information on a package. they are not "license file"; they contain information on each and every file of the package (name, checksums, license, copyright info, etc.). yes, the idea is that each component could have a corresponding SPDX file (uploaded after being generated externally). -- -- zvr -- -- +---------------------------+ Alexios Zavras (-zvr-) | H eytyxia den exei enoxes | zvr [ at ] zvr [ dot ] gr +-----------------------zvr-+
