Description of problem:
The current version of nss_ldap is 210 and contains native support
for netgroups. The first version of nss_ldap that supported netgroups
is 204. Nalin Dahyabhai <email@example.com> has been provided with
patches that will add netgroup support to versions 189 to 202.
Please either add the netgroup support patch to version 203 or
upgrade to the latest version of nss_ldap, which would be preferable.
Without netgroup support many things do not work properly after a migration from
NIS to LDAP. For instance sudo, pam_access, hosts.deny, hosts.allow, etc. This
is a major impact to sites which have migrated
or intend to migrate to LDAP.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
nss_ldap does not support netgroups in versions prior to 204 without
I can supply the netgroup support patch to Nalin again, if neccessary.
nss_ldap-207 is in the tree currently...
And how does one go about getting the 207 version?

new RPM. To save others from this scavenger hunt:
