I will create a package of luma, which will check for python-ldap-2.3 as a
So, although a test-update fixes this you close the ticket with NOTABUG?
Yes, becouse its a issue coused by python-ldap and not by the luma package.
I have wrote, that if you update python-ldap to version 2.3, luma works without
any modification on the luma package.
But I will create a package of luma for F7 and above, which have a python-ldap
>= 2.3 Requirement.
