GQ is missing

Description of problem:
I tried managing an OpenLDAP directory using GQ just to find out that it isn't
included anymore. I couldn't find any other LDAP administration tool.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to start gq
2. gq doesn't start up
3. Try to install the gq rpm... it doesn't exist.
Actual Results: No GQ is installed, no GQ can be found on the RedHat Linux 8.0
Expected Results: GQ should start.
I noticed gq was listed as 'no longer included' in 8.0.
Why? It's the only LDAP gui I could find that was of any use to me...
*very* useful when debugging an ldap directory, and in particular when
developing Samba's LDAP support...
Red Hat Linux is no longer supported by Red Hat, Inc. If you are still
running Red Hat Linux, you are strongly advised to upgrade to a
current Fedora Core release or Red Hat Enterprise Linux or comparable.
Some information on which option may be right for you is available at
Red Hat apologizes that these issues have not been resolved yet. We do
want to make sure that no important bugs slip through the cracks.
Please check if this issue is still present in a current Fedora Core
release. If so, please change the product and version to match, and
check the box indicating that the requested information has been
provided. Note that any bug still open against Red Hat Linux on will be
closed as 'CANTFIX' on September 30, 2006. Thanks again for your help.
I just reassignet this bug to RHEL4. GQ, which is well maintained again, is
still missing in RHEL4 and I think it's a must to include this tool with an
enterprise distribution which also includes openldap. My own gq rpm is here and
I recommend it for inclusion in the next RHEL release (Yes, it's not my first
package which has been included in RHEL).
Product Management has reviewed and declined this request. You may appeal this
decision by reopening this request.
