Re: LDAP Transactions RFC alignment

I'm interested in implementing LDAP Transactions as specified in RFC 5805.
I've checked there is something implemented in the client side, slapd and
back-bdb dated in 2006, as the RFC is of March 2010 I would like to know how
aligned is the current implementation in branch 2.4 with regards the RFC 5805.
I also use the back-meta to proxy to remote LDAP servers, AFAIK currently
there is no support for LDAP transactions in back-meta. Is there any plan to
extend the back-meta with support for LDAP transactions?

I don't believe the RFC has changed much since the last draft. Transaction support in slapd was never completed, the code in back-bdb is simply stubs.
