UVF Exception: libpam-ldap 178-1ubuntu2 -> 180-1

Bug #40149 reported by Jo Shields on 2006-04-19
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
debian-installer (Ubuntu)
libpam-ldap (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Further to bug 40003, I feel this warrants urgent fixing before Dapper is released - it is completely illogical to provide a package for system authentication via LDAP which then misses out a file vitally required to use any of the useful features LDAP-based authentication provides.

If updating the upstream version is unacceptable, then as a bare minimum the following line should be appended to debian/libpam-ldap.install:
ldapns.schema usr/share/doc/libpam-ldap

changes from current Dapper package to Etch package

Could you add the changes in the upstream changelog as well?

Changed in libpam-ldap:
status: Unconfirmed → Needs Info

Changes can be summed up as 2 manpage fixes, a bug fix, and a security fix.

could you make sure you ran diff -ruN <somedir> <someotherdir> | diffstat ? to me it looks like you ommitted the '-r' flag (to check all directories for changes).

Reinhard Tartler (siretart) wrote :

well, libpam-ldap is a very sensitive package, and we should update it with care, since it is critical in many installations. From the changelog, I agree that we should get the new update, but I'd like to inspect the complete debdiff of the source package first. will do that tomorrow.

Whoopsie, you're right Daniel. Here's a proper diffstat

This has nothing to do with debian-installer as far as I can see

From reading the diff, I can't see anything wrong with going for an UVF.

We should probably consider getting libpam-ldap in main too, since it's not that uncommon to use for networks.

seems to be fine for me judging from the changelog and diffstat... what do you think, Daniel/Reinhard?

Yeah, looks good.

Reinhard Tartler (siretart) wrote :

I testbuild and piuparted it locally here, so I'm okay with this upgrade as well.

Sebastian Dröge (slomo) wrote :

Ok... so let's get this synced from debian :)

status: Unconfirmed → Confirmed
