Description

Barnowl (at least on Athena) should sub to selected instances of -c filsrv (such as -i athena.mit.edu). Over the weekend, I saw one person being surprised that his session froze, presumably because he wasn't subbed.

Debathena is in the process of refactoring liblocker so it no longer explicitly links against libzephyr, it merely tells you what triplets correspond with a locker. It might instead be clever (and maybe I should file a new ticket) if barnowl supported some sort of IPC (maybe with a module) so that attach(1) or pyhesiodfs could determine if barnowl was running, and send it subscription/unsubscription info. DBus is probably too heavyweight; it could be something simple that has a known whitelist of allowed triplets.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
