This isn't documented well as it should be...

You have to submit a followup using e-mail.  Address the
e-mail to <openldap-its@openldap.org> and be sure to include
the issue identifier string (ITS#98) in the subject line.
The system keys off of this string to relate your e-mail with
the existing ITS.

Thanks.  Bill and/or Hallvard will contact you as needed.

Agreed, my comments were only meant to augment the request for enhancement
with additional information.   As with all OpenLDAP development:
necessity is the mother of invention.
