[Pdns-users] Status of the LDAP backend in 3.0 release

yes, I took a look on the issues and will put some work into fixing
them. From my POV #260 will be the first and most important thing to
deal with.

#317 looks trivial to fix, but as mentioned in the bug report, side
effect may exist.

Before promising something I can't keep: yes, I will give my best to fix
the issues above and if things go well, "it is not unlikely" that either
I myself or one of our developers will invest some more time into
enhancements, but one step after the other.

ETA for the fixes should be in during the coming week- hopefully :-) So
chances exist that the fixes can make it into the 3.0 release.
