Great to see a real autofs finally coming to FreeBSD.
I already did some very cursory testing on a recent 11-CURRENT system
that I still happened to have and things with at least the /net map look
I could do some more extensive testing if I could use some of my
10-STABLE systems. I already checked that the patch applies cleanly to a
recent 10-STABLE (modulo a few offsets) and that both buildworld and
buildkernel succeed. Should I expect difficulties actually running your
autofs on 10-STABLE?
And do you plan support for NIS? I know NIS is quite dead and has been
so for at least 20 years, but I still see it being used occasionally
(probably most out of habit) and it is (still ?) available in the
