Using OpenLDAP API instead
I ran into the problem described on Defect #1420. I was able to fix it using the patch attached by the defect's author. The patch basically changes the LDAP API used nowdays by redmine to the OpenLDAP.
I understand it's not a good idea to suddenly change the LDAP API used. But, how about a way to configure which API is used? We could set a flag somewhere in the config files or we could automatically check if the OpenLDAP is installed and start using it without asking the user.
I really would like to get the OpenLDAP authorization code into a release, otherwise I will always need to apply that patch in order to get it working on my server.
What is the community opinion about that?
