Re: glue entries

What are glue entries and how do they work in OpenLDAP?  The manageDSAit
code in back-bdb is intertwined with is_entry_glue() calls which I don't
know what to make of.  The only glue I can see bdb create seems to be a
fake entry named "" if that is the database suffix.  And I don't see
any mention of glue entries in other backends.

"glue" entries are mostly used in shadow databases that consist in partial replicas. Basically, in slapd/syncrepl.c.
