While it's good that you got this code working, I still believe you've
completely missed the point of dynamic groups.I agree with you that this is not a truly dynamic group. This overlay is more
of a "automatically updated static group," so maybe the name of this overlay is not
representing what it does exactly. But without modifying much of
the OpenLDAP codebase I don't see a better way to do it (but maybe I'm wrong,
so feel free to correct me)
Actually, I originally thought of this as a "materialized" dynamic
groups, per analogy to materialized views in RDBMS world.
So a more proper name for the overlay would be "mdynlist", not "rdynlist".
I think we can drop the dynlist reference since dynlist is much more general
and this is specific to groups. I think something like "autogroup" would be
more appropriate. If you're satisfied with the functionality of the code as-is
we can probably add it to the contrib/slapd-modules tree. Read the
contributing guidelines, then submit your package to the ITS.
