This file is a copy of the main OpenLDAP Software COPYRIGHT file.   
That file is intended to contain notices of copyright holders which  
hold signfiicant rights in OpenLDAP Software.  Notices for copyright  
holders, as noted in the COPYRIGHT file, are generally to be placed in  
the individual source files which the holder holds significant rights  
in.  That is, this notice belongs in security.sdf itself.  I have so  
updated the source documents.

Though the preface does clearly say that admin guide is part of  
OpenLDAP Software, I've also updated the preface to note that portions  
of the document may be copyright by others as indicated in source files.
