I have! ;-)

Sure, understood. I was just wondering if we have a procedure/checklist
for contributors so that they could prepare their patch or whatever for

I think contrib overlays should be standalone, i.e. seperate like
everything else in slapd-module with their own README and Makefile:

[ghenry@suretec contrib]$ ls slapd-modules/smbk5pwd/
CVS  Makefile  README  smbk5pwd.c

I'll reply via ITS to the latest contribs that look like they have catered
for cn=config etc. and get them to sort out a layout like above.

That sound ok?

If they don't get back to us, they don't get in ;-)

Maybe a wee FAQ item for this later or something on the main site.....
