libnss-mysql-bg Bug (no IPv6 Support) #420
IPv6 support for libnss-mysql-bg
Fixed .deb file
Also I am not sure if the definition of "maintain" is clear:
As far as I see it the currently distributed version segfaults and it does not support IPv6 which should be mandatory since 1998. I currently test the patched version on 3 Debian Servers (1x Wheezy, 2xJessie) and it works fine.
I knew that you are not the maintainers of the source code.
But you provide a repository. And for me the definition of a package maintainer is someone that provides a package on a package repository.
Obviously this is all volunteer work and there is no guarantee of code maintenance or updated packages.
It would just be nice if you could take the work @Cellebyte and put it on your repository improving the lives of all Froxlor users in the meantime.
So until it is clear if Froxlor does the switch to libnss-extrausers you could just upload the patched package (which does not segfault) to your apt repository. :-)
I strongly recommend the deprecation of libnss-mysql* usage with the upcoming froxlor versions. Since libnss-mysql-bg is unmaintained since 2005 (see sourceforge), potential security issues could arise very quickly. Also I discourage the approach of maintaining a Froxlor-version of the package.
Switching to a different user management approach, would probably be the best solution. As far as I'm aware of, Froxlor currently requires libnss-mysql* only for chown'ing the www-roots, but all other services like proftpd, dovecot/postfix, etc. do not really need it, as they have built-in or alternate interfaces to mysql already. With this change, even secure ssh/scp could be easier integrated in Froxlor by using
