Re: RPM spec file

I'm quite sure that Buchan chose to not incur in conflicts with openldap package provided by RH.
If the package was called the same as the RH one, you could be in trouble in trying to install/upgrade your system.

Me too I'm using Buchan's package and initially  found this approach counter-intuitive, but it was only at the beginning... :-)

Oops.  I see now that is not 'openldap2' but 'openldap2.4'.  I see you are now just adding the version in the name?  Why the change?  Why openldap2.4-2.4.20-1.el5.i386 instead of just openldap-2.4.20-1.el5.i386 (seems redundant)?
