[opensuse-buildservice] openSUSE:Factory - nothing provides libldap-2.4.so.2
(x-posting to -factory and -packaging to inform users / -buildservice

content of your reply, not to all!)

Hi hackers and packagers,

Since this morning, a lot of packages show status 'unresolvable
- nothing provides libldap-2.4.so.2()(64bit) needed by libcurl4'

The issue will settle itself, but it will take quite a moment
(actually, until the next snapshot will be ready).

How did this happen:
====================
openldap2 was changed in the packaging layout; so far there were 2 spec
files (openldap2 and openldap2-client). the -client part was the one
building the libraries (like libldap-2_4-2). The maintainers re-
organized this package and simplified it, now building everything from
openldap2.spec directly. This resulted in openldap2-client being
removed from openSUSE:Factory.

so, why does this impact openSUSE:Factory/snapshot ?
====================================================
The /snapshot repository copies binaries from packages in /standard. As
the package 'openldap2-client' no longer exists in /standard, all
binaries, also from /snapshot, have been removed.

What can you do *NOW* to build your project / package
=====================================================
* Not that much I'm afraid. You can try to build against
openSUSE:Factory/standard (but that will give you many more rebuilds
than you want and increase the load on OBS, thus slowing down the final
solution for everybody)
* You can wait for /standard to finish its build, pass on to openQA and
get a new /snapshot published.

A possible alternative solution:
================================
@Adrian / Buildservice team: can we possibly inject the binaries from
openldap2-client in the backend directly for /snapshot, until the next
one is published? This could give users at least a working repo back.
Other ideas are welcome of course too. In the long

Best regards,
Dominique
