Find a new release of python-ldap:


python-ldap provides an object-oriented API to access LDAP directory
servers from Python programs. It mainly wraps the OpenLDAP 2.x libs for
that purpose. Additionally it contains modules for other LDAP-related
stuff (e.g. processing LDIF, LDAPURLs and LDAPv3 schema).

Ciao, Michael.

  case_ignore_attr_types used to define attribute types for which
  comparison of old and new values should be case-insensitive

  trace levels
* Now tag [1] is used in ldap.extop.dds.RefreshResponse in
  compliance with RFC 2589 (fix available for OpenLDAP ITS#6886)
