I've been working on a branch to change the underlying ldap client
transport layer that the ldb_ildap module uses to be tldap.
The reason I started on this was due to a bug in the 'tls_socket'
wrapper, that I suspect is fixed in the tstream_tls implement ion.
It would also make it possible to remove the gensec_socket wrapper.
The work in progress is at
There is a lot still to do - for one, I need to make it work reliably.
As I expected, I'm having challenges propagating the right callbacks to
all the right spots. I also need to clean-up the commit list, squash
patches, make some changes preparatory where possible etc. I also think
tldap should probably move to libcli/ldap as this starts to make it used
However, at this point I am interested in any comments or thoughts, or
any fundamental reasons why this can't or shouldn't be done.
It has been an interesting exercise - I've used it as a way to learn
about tevent_req hands-on.
