Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2017-05-20 08:39:18 UTC
From ${URL} :

It was found that using openldap with a long list of acceptable CA names might break encryption. Sending the credentials while the handshake 
is complete would cause them to go out unencrypted.


@maintainer(s): after the bump, in case we need to stabilize the package, please let us know if it is ready for the stabilization or not.
