[Pkg-freeipa-devel] Bug#924015: Depends on oddjob-mkhomedir but doesn't use it

Package: freeipa-client
Version: 4.7.2-2
Severity: minor

But in ipaplatform/debian/tasks.py, I noticed:

    if mkhomedir:
			 "--package", "--enable", "mkhomedir"])

I don't know whether it would be better to downgrade the dependency on
oddjob-mkhomedir to Suggests, or whether this delta between Debian and
Red Hat could be reduced (which would required oddjob-mkhomedir to ship
a file in /usr/share/pam-configs).

It looks like Red Hat support only pam_oddjob_mkhomedir because it is
able to set the correct SELinux types on the newly-created home
