I do the primary work on the ldaptor Debian package these days. Tommy did not
release a new version for years but has the mentioned git repository. The
Debian svn repository at
svn://svn.debian.org/python-modules/packages/ldaptor/trunk/ contains a series
of patches in the debian/patches directory to fix some minor issues with

I can not speak for the list but I'd like to get patches to incorporate them in
the Debian package.

I'll have a look at your changes later this week.

@Tommy: are you still interested to be the primary upstream for ldaptor or
would you like Anton or me to provide a new upstream project? What do you think
of the idea to merge fixes from github into your git repository and creating
future releases?
