Bug#600458: unblock: nss-pam-ldapd/0.7.11



Subject: unblock: nss-pam-ldapd/0.7.11
Package: release.debian.org
User: release.debian.org@packages.debian.org
Usertags: freeze-exception
Severity: normal

Please unblock version 0.7.11 of nss-pam-ldapd. It has the following
changes:

  * updated Vietnamese debconf translation by Clytie Siddall (closes: #598500)
  * grow the buffer for the PAM ruser to not reject logins for users with
    a ruser including a domain part (closes: #600065)

It is debatable whether the second one is really RC but it prevents
certain users from logging in and is a very minor change (one line in
nslcd/pam.c).


I have another pending change that fixes a problem when nslcd would hang
under certain  circumstances (using TLS and seeing a certain type of
network problem during a search). This change is a little larger and was
the result of missing a last part of #596983.

It involves setting a timeout on the socket when closing the connection
and ensuring that in all places that the connection is closed the same
function is executed. It is a workaround for a bug in OpenLDAP when used
with GnuTLS. The relevant change can be seen here:
  http://arthurdejong.org/viewvc/nss-pam-ldapd/nss-pam-ldapd/nslcd/myldap.c?r1=1276&r2=1275&pathrev=1276
(except the changes from line 690 onwards because they are specific to
changes in the trunk)

Do you want me to prepare an upload to unstable with the above change?

Thanks for considering.
