Hi Jerry, hi Jeremy,
afer some internal discussion with Volker I convinced him that
it's not the worst thing not to default "ldap connection timeout" to
"ldap timeout" when that parameter was set explicitly. One good argument
is the problem that is described in
https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=4544 . There is no point in
defaulting the connection timeout to the old ldap timeout because in the
situation where a connection timeout occured because the ldap server
host is *down*, then we currently run into a tcp timeout which is anyway
much longer than the ldap timeout.
To cut a long story short: the patch from
https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3504 could be considered to
be complete. Do you have any objections to check it in?
