Find a new release of python-ldap:

  http://pypi.python.org/pypi/python-ldap/2.4.20

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, LDAP URLs and LDAPv3 schema).
