Description of problem:
perl module IO::Socket::SSL dependency for Net::LDAPS (LDAP over SSL) is missing. Need to include in perl-LDAP RPM or create additional RPM and dependency.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
perl -e "use Net::LDAPS; $ldap = Net::LDAPS->new("ldap",version => 3);"

Yes, you'll need to install IO::Socket::SSL and Authen::SASL from CPAN to
use Net::LDAPS .
IO::Socket::SSL and Authen::SASL are noted as 'Optional' packages during
the Net::LDAP build and their absence is tolerated.
These packages are also missing from all Fedora Core releases, but they are
shipped as RPMs in Fedora Extras.
We try to keep the number of perl modules we ship and maintain to an absolute
minimum, and the above two packages are not required for the core Net::LDAP
The upstream package should perhaps not be shipping Net::LDAPS at all if
the optional IO::Socket::SSL and Authen::SASL are not installed .
I'll move this to an enhancement request to ship new perl-IO-Socket-SSL and
perl-Authen-SASL packages in RHEL-4, for the consideration of Product

Thanks Dave - sorry about that.
This bug is really a request to add these packages, currently only in Fedora
Extras, to RHEL :
(The packages missing for Net::LDAPS support and their dependencies).
I'm also making a request to get these packages into post-FC-5 rawhide (FC-6).
So, it's been a year. Can we either get some form of traction or just close
this with a "no"?
