..I was wondering how the recent 'doesnt compile' got through - and thinking
about it, its because the test system has all the required libraries installed.
maybe would be good to have a test system that is a basic install - and thus
will fail to build things that have required libraries?

I'd like the definition of many ;-)   - how many of those are doing proxying,
RADSEC, using SQL with dynamic-clients and buffered-sql, decoupled-accounting etc.
this is where the historic bugs appear to lurk

:-)   I agree...but those with established 2.x servers and not much knowledge
of how things work arent going to have a nice smooth upgrade - there is no 'upgrade tool'
to help make the move.  What is RedHst et als view of the new major release? will
we see FR3 in RHEL 7 - or in 8 or 9? (look at the slow 1.x -> 2.x transitions in most

certainly, in my view, FR 3.0 will be far more 'eduroam ready' out of the box than it
ever was with 2.x - that'll help those admins who want to reploy this superior RADIUS
solution....those that already run 2.x will have to be sold the advantages..
