Bug Description

[ Impact ]

 * MRE for the latest stable OpenLDAP 2.5.x release, 2.5.12.

This update includes bugfixes only following the SRU policy exception defined at

[ Major Changes ]

 * See the list of bugs fixed in this release here:

https://<email address hidden>/thread/LSEQKADYZFFMZJGPEVBRR3OVOY4IOGRA/

 * In particular, this release includes the fix for CVE-2022-29155, but since the CVE has already been addressed by the currently OpenLDAP version in Jammy (2.5.11+dfsg-1~exp1ubuntu3.1), this does not classify as a security upload.

[ Test Plan ]

 * Upstream gitlab pipeline results:

 * Upstream "call for testing": https://<email address hidden>/thread/5ZJEOQSVFQBG5TRLAAF6S5M3VRJH5IAV/

 * As described in the MRE wiki page for OpenLDAP, the test plan is to build the package in bileto and make sure that (1) all build-time tests pass and (2) all autopkgtest runs (from reverse dependencies) also pass.

 * Build log (amd64) confirming that the build-time testsuite has been performed and completed successfully:

 * Bileto ticket:

[ Where problems could occur ]

 * Upstream tests are always executed during build-time. There are many reverse dependencies whose dep8 tests depend on OpenLDAP so the coverage is good. Nevertheless, there is always a risk for something to break since we are dealing with a microrelease upgrade. Whenever a test failure is detected, we will be on top of it and make sure it doesn't affect existing users.

[ Other Info ]

 * This is a reoccurring MRE. See below for links to previous OpenLDAP MREs.

 * CVEs fixed by this release:
   - CVE-2022-29155, which has already been addressed in Jammy.

Current versions in supported releases that got updates:
 openldap | 2.5.11+dfsg-1~exp1ubuntu3.1 | jammy-updates | source

Special cases:
- None.

Previous MREs for OpenLDAP:
- None so far.

As usual we test and prep from the PPA and then push through SRU/Security as applicable.

As usual with non-security updates, we use the results of autopkgtest in order to perform the verification. In this case, all tests succeeded for openldap in Jammy. Therefore, tagging as verification-done-jammy.
