Re: postalAddress matching rule

As part of my testing work for the above i once accidentally created a postalAddress attribute with two values. When i tried to remove the extra attribute value it failed, the error i got was something like that there is no matching rule for postalAddress, which if there really isn't then it's probably a reasonable thing for slapd to complain about, as it wont be able to tell the individual values of postalAddress apart.

So to put it in a nutshell, i'm willing to have a go implementing a
postalAddress matching rule, but i was wondering if anyone has any
thoughts where i might begin, and/or any pointers as to which file(s)
implement the matching rules.

I don't want to hold you back from implementing the EQUALITY matching rule for PostalAdress syntax.

But you could also just delete the whole attribute and re-add the value(s) needed. (That's how the delta-modification works in web2ldap if the EQUALITY matching rule is not implemented.)
