Description Enji Cooper freebsd_committer 2019-12-07 06:25:59 UTC
Doing some hunting around for a potential alternative to net/py-ldap, I ran into net/py-ldap3 . I decided against it because of its less permissive license, but wanted to note that the actual license differs from the version used in the COPYING.txt and the port Makefile. Per the project website (from https://ldap3.readthedocs.io ):

> ldap3 is a pure Python LDAP 3 client library strictly conforming to RFC4510 and is released under the LGPL v3 open source license. RFC4510 is the current LDAP specification (June 2006) from IETF and obsoletes the previous LDAP RFCs 2251, 2830, 3771 (December 1997).

A patch to address the issue will be available shortly.

Should've been just LGPL3 (without v). Committed, thank you!
