Description Petr Pisar 2017-01-20 08:24:36 UTC
openldap-2.4.44-2.fc25.x86_64 package run-requires nss-tools package. I think the dependency is not needed and should be removed.

nss-tools package provides only executable programs and simple search for their names (certutil|cmsutil|crlutil|modutil|pk12util|signtool|signver|ssltap|unsupported-tools) in openldap files did find any occurrences.

Comment 1 Matus Honek 2017-01-20 10:05:32 UTC

Correct, it should not be in Requires. However, as OpenLDAP is currently compiled with NSS and OpenLDAP's documentation has plenty of examples of how to manage an NSS database, I would like to keep it as a Recommends, at least. What do you think, is this plausible?

Anyway, thanks to bug 1400570 all NSS dependencies should go away in approx. two Fedora releases.

Comment 2 Petr Pisar 2017-01-20 10:17:05 UTC
Recommends is good.

Comment 3 Fedora End Of Life 2017-02-28 11:01:28 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 26 development cycle.
Changing version to '26'.
