Thanx ... I hope they are helpful for folks ... I tried to show
how sudo is used in a real-world environment situation.
BTW, I should say we rdist to about 120 "Servers" which then provide
the sudoers file via NFS to 1,000+ clients ... but only ONE golden
sudoers file everywhere. Was a bit of work "getting there" ... ;-)
and that's why I wrote "sudo-tools" (sudoers-line and sudo-usage) to
try to keep the sudoers file semi-clean.
I also meant to add that I don't believe sudo has the capability to
have the sudoers file via NIS - I think this is on Todd's todo list
for version 2.0 (i.e. someday! ;-) ... pls correct if wrong Todd.
