Version: 2.3.20

Zeroconf Support (Patch) For OpenLDAP
=====================================

DISCLAIMER:
This patch file is derived from OpenLDAP Software. All of the modifications to
OpenLDAP Software represented in the following patch(es) were developed by
Daniel S. Haischt <me@daniel.stefan.haischt.name>. These modifications are
not
subject to any license.

What it does...
---------------

I saw that it is possible to register a SLAPD instance with a OpenSLP server.
Hence I thought it would be a good idea/alternative, to be able to register
the same SLAPD instance with a mDNS (multicast DNS) implementation.

Multicast DNS is part of the Zeroconf specification framework.

This patch enables one to register OpenLDAP (i.e. SLAPD) with one of the
following mDNS implementations...

 * Apple's Bonjour (their open source version)
 * Porchdogs Howl
 * Avahi (a LGPL based project)

What is required...
-------------------

 * One of the above Zeroconf/mDNS implementations
 * The command line option '-o zeroconf=on', if OpenLDAP
   was compiled with Zeroconf support.

What works...
-------------

I just created this patch within a few hours. I did test it against
OpenLDAP 2.3.20 and Avahi 0.6.3. I did do the test on a Linux type of
system. I did not test the other remaining Zerconf implementations,
neither did I test on other platforms (e.g. win32 or  *BSD system).

Thus, you should mark this test as 'needs testing'.

The last sentence of your notice doesn't follow the contribution
template as it doesn't make any assertion as to whether your
employer (or other entity who might have some claim to your
work products) subjects your contribution to a license.

You did not include rights statement.

Please review http://www.openldap.org/devel/contributing.html
and revise your submission as necessary to correct these problems
so that your contribution can be considered for inclusion.

Regards, Kurt
