Okay, I've now read through all the relevant drafts (ldup model, ldup
information model, ldup subentry etc). Now, I have a problem. I need to add
entries replicaContextRoots and replicaSubentries to the root
DSE. Currently, OpenLDAP "creates" a root DSE entry on the fly. I need a
"real" rootDSE so that an administrative utility can add/modify attributes
in the rootDSE to modify replica information. How do I go about doing this?
