Re: A question on syncrepl

It is only today I found this note different from the previous one
because of the same title. :)

For add and delete, the presence of the target entry in the content can be assumed.
On the other hand, for modify and modrdn, it is needed to examine whether or not the
target entry belonged to the content before the operation as well as after.
