Which version of FreeiPA will ship with Bionic?

Asked by dh on 2017-12-05

Hi there,

Will the version of freeipa would be bumped to 4.5 for the Bionic release?
Their mailing lists shows that installing the 4.4 series has potentially left me (and others ) in a rather vulnerable situation (broken CA renewals) due to package availability and this should be remedied in 4.5.

See update from Peter Fern from Dec 2nd. At https://<email address hidden>/thread/XCIKU3UB3WFAGIN3YV7F57HBYPK2QT2L/

Apologies if I've misunderstood,

Shows 4.4.4

Bionic isn't even in the Alpha 1 stage so this may change. There is a lot of development and work to be done and nothing is set in stone. They don't even have a stone yet.

There is a package freeze waaaaay in the future (see release schedule for details) and that version will then ship

Ubuntu is copying some of the packages from Debian, and as far as I can see, also Debian sid has only version 4.4.4
Maybe the better way is requesting that Debian upgrades to 4.5.*, and Ubuntu will then probably follow.

Can you help with this problem?
