I am reading <draft-good-ldap-changelog-02.txt> (ChangeLog draft )
and <draft-ietf-ldup-lcup-01.txt> (LCUP draft) to see what needs
to be done. Our customer needs the ChangeLog functionality so it
is likely that I have to choose that replication/update method.

Please let me get back if I have additional questions.

Depending on the amount of time required I will either hack this
functionality or fully implement it...either way it might be
interesting for openLdap community (based on the response I got
from different people after my last post) to submit it to openldap
project when it is done.

Thanks for your help.
