I've spent the past few weeks forward porting and rewriting the LDAP
Keyserver support for GnuPG 2.1.  I've just pushed it to master.

To test it, you can run the following:

  $ gpg2 --keyserver ldap://keys.eika.no --search-keys kf at eika.no
  $ gpg2 --keyserver ldap://keys.eika.no --send-key 664D7444
  $ gpg2 --keyserver ldap://keys.eika.no --recv-key 664D7444

(keys.eika.no is a publically available LDAP keyserver.  If you want
to set up your own, you can try following [1].)

If you need to log in to access the LDAP server, use the following


You'll need to replace USER, dc=EXAMPLE%2cdc=ORG and PASSWORD.  Make
sure to include four question marks.

Note that the values are percent escaped.  Thus, spaces are replaced
with %2c and commas with %2c.

In addition to the ldap protocol, you can access the server using the
ldaps (TLS) and ldapi protocols.

I'm interested in both problems you may have as well as success.
