Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2008-03-10 09:55:12 EDT
Is this a common setup?  Why does bugzilla use ldap?
Comment 2 cje 2008-03-10 17:35:27 EDT
it's the only remote account management option available in bugzilla (i think).
 i imagine it's not in common use because it doesn't work well.

but the point is that it's certainly meant to be possible - it's not an add-on
feature or anything - it's right there in the .rpm package.

see section 3.1.11. "LDAP Authentication" on
Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2008-03-11 19:27:57 EDT
Ok, although from reading up on it, it seems pretty shaky.

Fixed in selinux-policy-3.0.8-93.fc8
