Re: (ITS#5402) Sets: Hyphens within attribute names considered as separate tokens

Since the ITS' purpose consists in helping tracking issues,
please keep it in CC in replies, otherwise you defeat its purpose.

This error appears to have nothing to do with the proposed fix,
so you should rather post to OpenLDAP-software (and, only in case
another issue surfaces, file a separate ITS).

I do not develop on that platform, nor I have access to it, so
I'm afraid I can't help.
