The account types define what kind of
accounts can be managed with LAM. If you want to create a new account
module which does not fit in the existing classes of users, groups and
hosts then you need your own account type.
All account types are saved in lib/types/
Please take a look at the type HowTo
an example to write your own types.
The complete specification for the type interface can be found here
All account types
subclasses of the baseType
This reduces very much the code since not the complete type interface
to be implemented.
New types can simply be copied to lib/types
LAM will check what files are inside the directory and provide the user
new types automatically.
There is no extra configuration file.
