Contributed by rueda on from the ldapd-gets-a-friend dept.

Reyk Floeter (reyk@) has committed a simple LDAP client to -current:

Module name:	src
Changes by:	2018/06/13 09:45:58

Log message:
    Import ldap(1), a simple ldap search client.
    We have an ldapd(8) server and ypldap in base, so it makes sense to
    have a simple LDAP client without depending on the OpenLDAP package.
    This tool can be used in an ssh(1) AuthorizedKeysCommand script.
    With feedback from many including millert@ schwarze@ gilles@ dlg@ jsing@
    OK deraadt@

    It's good to have alternatives!

    Is there an ETA for it getting hooked into the build, i.e. into snapshots?

      Answering my own question -
