Apple introduced static mappings in Mac OS X 10.2.2 for the LDAPv3 plug-in. Static mappings allow administrators to configure attributes in the LDAPv3 plug-in that are global for all users. This functionality is nice, but wouldn't it be even better to have wildcards placed in the static strings? For instance, if you configured the NFSHomeDirectory mapping to be #/tmp/$uid$ and $uid$ would be replaced by your user name.

Dan modified the LDAPv3 plug-in to support wildcards in static mappings. His presentation will include a demonstration of the modified plug-in.
