No, it's correct, the problem is the script which detects these things
works on source packages and:
openldap2 | 2.1.23-1 | unstable | source
openldap2.1 | 2.1.12-1 | experimental | source
I've added extending the check to binary packages to the TODO list,
until it's done, feel free to file bugs about any other packages like
this which get missed.
