[CentOS] FreeIPA

I have heard rumours from some Red Hat employees that IPA will be
integrated into Spacewalk this was about 1.5 months ago which would
also make sense since Spacewalk is supposed to be their single point
of management tool.

But as I said it's rumours.

I spoke with Simo Sorce at the Fosdem event regarding that (having 
IPA/FreeIPA rpms sitting in the Extras repository)
Due to the fact that Red Hat made it clear now that the actual RHEIPA

will be discontinued (at least in its actual form and will probably 
change to something else ...) we still don't know what direction to
Rebuilding FreeIPA is probably possible too but how long will that be

possible ? FreeIPA isn't looking at being backward compatible and
focus on RHEL interopability. It can probably work for a certain
but surely not as long as an Enterprise timelife ... That's maybe
discussing it though.
On the other hand, centos-ds is in the testing repo for a while and 
there were not a lot of feedback : the plan is/was to move it to
when enough testing/reports have hit the -devel list ...
