This works quite well since years with several LDAP servers. If there
was a modification in between the delta modification still applies

Not sure if I should be writing this since I've hardly looked at web2ldap yet, but anyway... I don't quite get that. I'd think a correct delta would be generated by comparing with the entries as they looked when the user started editing. Minus any changes that have happened already.

web2ldap trys to get close to a viable solution. The really correct solution would involve entry locking like available in RDBMS, maybe via an LDAP extended operation.

Ciao, Michael.
