(ITS#7283) Usage of private headers make building out-of-tree extensions painful
Full_Name: Guillaume Rousse
Submission from: (NULL) (126.96.36.199)
In order to build out of tree extensions, such as ppolicy external password
you need additional slapd headers, portable.h and slapd.h (and a bunch of
additional dependant ones), which are currently not installed, and thus
considered as private.
A request to ship those headers was refused by fedora package maintainer,
precisely for this reason:
The situation ought to be clarified, and some kind of solution found, as
maintaining a custom slapd build just to be able to benefit from this
extensability is largely overkill.
