How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Allow Active Directory Distribution Lists to be Targeted for Deployments in Collections as a Group Resource

Allow Active Directory Distribution Lists to be Targeted for Deployments in Collections as a Group Resource. Currently AD DLs are not able to be targeted, just AD Security Groups are able to be targeted.

    Discovery of DL groups only discovers the members in the DL, not the DL itself with the membership...

    You can target dl groups by ensuring they are discovered, and using a query rule for collection membership.

    Yes, and also when AD Security Groups or DL's are used for deployment it would be nice if the deployment status reflects all the members in the group. Since Group membership is determined at "run time" the user policy is run/evaluated on the sccm client... it would be cool if group membership could be associated in the DB and then they could list the currently known users in the groups.
