When using slapo-accesslog in a meta-directory environment you might
query the accesslog database for quickly detecting deleted entries with

accordingly. Now when receiving this entry of object class auditDelete
entry referenced by 'reqDN' is already gone. But the primary key used for
synchronization might be some attribute within the deleted entry and
not being
part of the DN.

So it would be helpful to preserve a set of configurable attributes of
deleted entry in those entries of object class 'auditDelete' in the
database just like attribute 'reqOld' for modify and modifyDN requests
(configurable with logold/logoldattr).

Currently logold already logs the entire entry, so everything you could
need is already there.

Ah, ok. I misunderstood slapo-accesslog(5) and thought that this is also only
done for modify and modifyDN requests. To preserve disk space slapo-accesslog
could also take logoldattr into account for delete requests.

logoldattr is to specify *additional* attributes beyond the ones already being touched in the modify request. Since delete already logs everything, there is no purpose for it here.
