Re: (ITS#5497) back-sql with base64 encoded attributes

Please use the mailinglist (openldap-source and -technical) for
questions about using the software.  This does not look like a bug,
which is what the ITS system is for.  This ITS will be closed.

Since I'm writing anyway though:
Textual attributes in LDAP are as UTF-8.  I'm not sure what chacter
encoding you are using, but I assume it't something else.

As for base64, that's merely part of the LDIF file format, not how the
value is represented in LDAP (nor SQL I presume).  The '::' after the
attribute names tells the client which reads the LDIF to base64-decode
the provided value.
