Find a new release of python-ldap:

  http://python-ldap.sourceforge.net/

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).

Note that the download page has changed recently. You can now find the
source distribution at PyPI:

  http://pypi.python.org/pypi/python-ldap/

Ciao, Michael.
