- The address to report bugs in sendmail is
firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm pretty sure the
changes made in the ldap stuff for 8.10 were mostly
developed against the openldap libraries. The ldap

- 8.10 is still in beta, so you should report any bugs
asap. I've been using 8.10 and openldap1.2.7 for several
monthes now, but I haven't done any serious multi-attribute
testing on the combo.
