Hi Alexander,

Thanks for your input. Indeed, Debian still compiles against Heimdal.
I've added both devel MLs for Debian, maybe someone can give some
input whats needed to get "freeipa-server-trust-ad" working.

@Debian Team:
If there is something I can test, please let me know!
I know Sid is not for production but I would like to see FreeIPA in Bullseye.

Ref.: https://packages.debian.org/en/sid/freeipa-server-trust-ad

Fedora 31:

Debian Sid:

I will try Fedora 31 / CentOS 8 then.

Kind regards
