Re: drop "stable"

If stable is not dropped, at least have a page for known 'bad problems' for the releases. This would help to inform users why they would or would not want a particular release.

I fairly well agree. OpenLDAP 2.4.23 has a number of serious problems. OpenLDAP 2.4.26 is much more "stable". I think it is unfortunate that 2.4.23 is still listed as the "stable" release on the downloads page. There may still yet be bugs in 2.4.26, but it is a vast improvement over 2.4.23, 2.4.24, or 2.4.25.
