Re: Want to work on "Implement DIT Structure Rules and Name Forms" project

Hi Kurt,
Thanks for the guidance.
Have completed reading of the document you suggested
X.500/ X.501 and draft-ietf-ldapbis-models-xx.txt
I am also reading Understanding X.500 by Chadwick Chapter 3 Controlling the
information in the Directory - the schema

have got a good understanding of the feature.

I feel, I can start tracing the current implementation of the feature to get
the complete picture.

What do you suggest.
