I took over ldap2dns just in order to keep it in Debian. I checked the new
upstream version some time ago but haven't had the time to create a new
package for it since iirc it didn't work cleanly with my old LDAP records¹
and I couldn't figure out what the problem was.
I'd say go ahead and take over the package (co-maintainership is fine too),
but keep in mind, that you'd need to provide an upgrade procedure for
older versions (see ¹).
¹: it wrote the tinydns records just fine, but $? was always 1
