This is a symptom of that  the OTP team have not had a good enough process
for including contributions. I think it is just lately that PR-process has
started to work good enough.
In the  past it was quite common that prototypes that work well for some
use case where included without proper tests, documentation or code
reviews. We do have it in our backlog to
make eldap into a proper OTP application, it just has not been prioritized
high  enough yet. PR are  welcome.
