Doc Text:
OpenLDAP has been re-based to upstream version 2.3.43. This applies several upstream bug fixes, including: * The init script now reports a warning if the slapd daemon cannot read a TLS certificate file. * All libraries in openldap-debuginfo package are now unstripped. * Uninstalling the openldap-devel package no longer breaks openldap libraries. Red Hat now distributes additional overlays for OpenLDAP server. Except for syncprov, all overlays can be found in separate openldap-servers-overlays packages, compiled as dynamically loadable modules. The syncprov overlay is statically linked to the OpenLDAP server to maintain compatibility with older OpenLDAP releases.

Description Jan Safranek 2008-07-11 06:51:21 EDT
The openldap version we ship in RHEL 5 (openldap-2.3.27) is really anicent, we
should rebase it to recent openldap-2.3.42, which is maybe the last release in
2.3.x branch (maintenance branch, real development happens in HEAD and 2.4.x).

There is no API/ABI breaker, no soname bump.

See attached changelog for detailed description what has changed (really lot of
bugfixes, some of them critical).

Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2008-07-11 06:59:33 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release.  Product Management has requested
further review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential
inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Update release for currently deployed
products.  This request is not yet committed for inclusion in an Update
release.
Comment 3 Denise Dumas 2008-07-11 09:50:05 EDT
Note that openldap is already an approved component and there are 9 outstanding
bugfixes that we would otherwise have to backport.
Comment 6 Jan Safranek 2008-07-17 06:10:37 EDT
I created preview of rebased openldap at
http://people.redhat.com/jsafrane/bugs/454994/. Note that the package does not
contain all fixes  scheduled for RHEL 5.3. It's should contain all bugfixes for
RHEL 5.2 and it should not introduce any regression.
Comment 7 Jan Safranek 2008-07-21 09:50:15 EDT
In the meantime upstream released ver. 2.3.43, fixing five additional bugs, two
of them serious, so we should rebase to it.
