openldap and multilib

On 15th May Pat updated current with these comments in the changelog

n/openldap-2.4.50-x86_64-1.txz: Added.
This is a complete OpenLDAP package with both client and server support.
Thanks to Giuseppe Di Terlizzi for help with the server parts.
n/openldap-client-2.4.50-x86_64-1.txz: Removed.

I'm using slackpkg+ with current, ktown and multilib

Somehow I've ended up with


Should I remove

or leave well alone.

Should I expect to see

When following -current with slackpkg, it will not suggest that you remove packages that are titled "Removed." in the changelog. You need to remove those manually or run slackpkg clean-system, which will present all packages not included in -current (including ones that were removed).

Eric usually strives to keep his compat32 packages in sync with Pat's upgrades. Don't know why he didn't replaced his openldap-client-compat32 package with a new openldap-compat32 when he refreshed his multilib repo on May 18. Maybe just an oversight.

If you want to, you can sync yourself by creating your own openldap-compat32 package: download the 32bit package and run
convertpkg-compat32 -i openldap-2.4.50-i586-1.txz

I doubt that it will cause any issues (if so, just revert to the old compat32 package).
