Hi Alexander,

Recently, Solaris support for nss-pam-ldapd was contributed by Ted C.
Cheng of Symas Corporation. The general work that was done for this also
makes it possible to integrate the FreeBSD support natively into

For this, I would like to use the file bsdnss.c that is part of
patch-nss__bsdnss.c that can be found here:

Before I can use that file I would like to confirm the copyright and
license status of that file. For clarification, I would like to add the
header below to that file (I've also made some small modifications). Can
you confirm that the license and copyright information is correct?


Btw, if you need help in integrating a more recent version of
nss-pam-ldapd (it seems that 0.7.7 is in FreeBSD, while 0.7.13 is also
available) I can probably assist (I don't have a FreeBSD system handy
