In the sudoers schema file
(/etc/dirsrv/slapd-<instance>/schema/60sudo.ldif), you'll note that
the sudoUser attribute has:
So do the sudoHost, sudoCommand, etc., attributes. If you want
case-insensitive matching, you should change that to:
And then restart the DS.

Yes, those are the latest packages. Note that the fedora-ds-base
package -- which has the important stuff -- and the fedora-ds-console
package -- which has the shiny GUI stuff -- are both at 1.2.0, the
latest version. FDS -- err, 389DS -- doesn't rev all of the package
versions to track the release version, so the fedora-ds package is
still at 1.1.3 while its requirements are at various other versions.
Some nuts and bolts: fedora-ds is itself just a "meta-package" that
contains nothing; it just requires other packages. So the fedora-ds
package version really only needs to incremented if the requirements
change. Since they didn't, it's easier for the dev team to leave what
they can alone and only release new versions of packages that actually
have some changed code.
++ Makes perfect sense, thanks a bunch, so i should be most concerned with
the fedora-ds-base and fedora-ds-console packages for revision or version
changes. I will definitely keep that in mind.
Thanks again for the clarity.
