Hi Bert,

As it's almost two months already since your last post regarding LDAP 
backend (see above), and Ticket 313 has been resolved since build 2193, 
have you had any chance to look into Ticket 260, esp. after people here 
have provided scripts for LDAP setup (and I have provided access to a 
test LDAP Server, complete with DNS records, which is up and running; 
you can either work on my server locally, by logging in using SSH, or 
you can work at your own machines, connecting to the test LDAP Server 
remotely, at standard port 389).

Could you please give us LDAP-backend users an update as we are closing 
to 3.0 release?

[Parenthetically, I feel I must also refer here to the issue with 
pdns_control not working with LDAP backend to send Notify messages - old 
Bug #37 (closed, but should probably be re-opened).]

Thank you very much,
