remove auth.savePassword, server->password, sever->savePassword, etc from nsDirPrefs.cpp there's a lot we could clean up from nsDirPrefs.cpp. (dmose and others want to remove it / rewrite it / replace it with the ldap service, but let's take one step at a time.) now that dmose is going to land his LDAP auth code, and rdayal's existing LDAP auth code for LDAP replication doesn't use it, we should remove some of the savePassword junk for nsDirPrefs.cpp the server doesn't need to know about savePassword or password, and we don't need to reflect those into prefs. passwords should be saved into wallet (like dmose is doing), and the ui for remember password is on the password dialog. (and to forget, we go to wallet and delete the remembered password.) over to dmose, who hates nsDirPrefs.cpp too.
the reason for this bug is to make nsDirPrefs.cpp less confusing, by removing unused and misleading code.
My stance on this has changed a bit; see bug 148900 for details.
