Unfortunate. I really wish authors would check their facts before publishing,
especially when it's so easy to have something reviewed ahead of time. While
it's great to give OpenLDAP more exposure, spreading incorrect information
does the entire community a disservice. And, as a purely personal note, it
strikes me that writing without getting initial feedback from the community
isn't very considerate of the community that has worked so hard writing the
actual software; it's a misrepresentation at least.
