Submission from: (NULL) (

OpenLDAP client libraries do not implement convenient mechanisms for interfacing
to MS Active Directory with minimum necessary configuration. Also, SASL
implementation is tightly connected with Cyrus SASL libs. Submitted patch
modifies the library to provide more generic SASL layer used both by Cyrus SASL
and contributed GSSAPI mechanism. The GSSAPI itself is limited to Kerberos 5, at
the moment, but the goal is to provide complete SASL layer for easy connecting
to MS servers.
