Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 59225
Please add perl NET::LDAP module to next version
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:30 EST
Description of Problem:
LDAP use is increasing, please add the Net::LDAP perl module to Red Hat Linux.
I noticed that rawhile has 10 more perl module RPMs versus 7.2.
This would be REALLY nice as LDAP deployments are increasingly common.
this will be considered for future releases
Please consider again now that Severn is out.
I've written a slick replacement for the PADL.COM /etc/* -> LDAP migration
scripts that requires Perl-LDAP.
It can import /etc files into an LDAP directory over the network optionally
using SSL/TLS and does not have run on the actual LDAP server itself (the PADL
scripts can't do this).
Also, it is completely driven by command line arguments and self contained in a
single file. The PADL scripts are numerous and must have variables inside them
I would like to propose getting my "ldapmigrate" script added to RHL, but it
requires perl-LDAP first.
We humbly offer the GuruLabs.com "ldapmigrate" script as an
alternative solution to the PADL.COM migration scripts.
It licensed under the GPLv2 and can be found at:
Documentation can be read with --help.
Moving bug to Fedora. Still wanting NET::LDAP.
thanks for adding it.
