Yes, just a fix of my previous QA upload. I'm aware of your
current activities. Eventually, I'll post patches or comments on BTS. I have
a working NIS environment here, just if you need a testbed or something.

BTW, i did try to subscribe the autofs devel list, without results.
I think communicating a few patches and comments upstream is mandatory
for autofs...

Also, if i had time, I would start experiments with autofs-ng which 
is potentially a complete rewrote and improvement of current
kernel and user space tools.
