The openldap-devel package includes the development libraries and
header files needed for compiling applications that use LDAP
(Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) internals. LDAP is a set of
protocols for enabling directory services over the Internet. Install
this package only if you plan to develop or will need to compile
customized LDAP clients.
Internet-Drafts (I-Ds) are working documents of the Internet
Engineering Task Force (IETF), its areas, its working groups, and
I-Ds are only valid for a maximum of six months and may be updated,
replaced, or obsoleted by other documents at any time. It is
inappropriate to use I-Ds as reference material or to cite them
other than as "work in progress."
