Description Petr Pisar 2019-08-29 13:12:57 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1663063 +++

The standard Perl method of accessing any LDAP server (Net::LDAP) was previously available from RedHat as the perl-LDAP package.  However starting with RHEL8, this package has been removed with no explanation.

This seems particularly odd given that it is *the* reference implementation for perl access to LDAP and there are hundreds if not thousands of utilities that have been developed over the years utilizing Net::LDAP and its related modules.



perl-Convert-ASN1 is needed for perl-LDAP package.
