Description Nick Urbanik 2002-10-10 14:15:03 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020830

Description of problem:
I was very exited that the beta contained openldap 2.1.x, and was extremely
disappointed to see it withdrawn from Red hat 8.0.  Since we use LDAP to
authenticate thousands of computer accounts in my Institute, I wanted to use the
features of 2.1.5.  Okay, I can compile and install it, but pelase tell me---why
did you withdraw it?  Is there an instability that I should know about?  The
mailing list is silent on this.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 2.0.25

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.List files in my downloaded RH 8.0 with exitement and quivering anticipation :-)
2.See that OpenLDAP 2.1.x has been withdrawn from the distribution, and replaced
by the old 2.0.25 :-|
3.Sit down, very disappointed. :-(

Actual Results:  I opened a beer and felt better.

Expected Results:  I should have seen openldap-2.1.5

Additional info:

I need to know what bugs caused you to withdraw it; do they still remain?  Are
there workarounds?

I'm interested in this as well.

Check the openldap-software@openldap.org mailinglist for an announcement of uofficial rpms. I haven't tested them.


Comment 3 Nalin Dahyabhai 2003-03-26 21:05:52 UTC
There were indexing bugs which have since been fixed in the 2.1 series.  We'll
look at 2.1 again for the next release.
