Re: drop "stable"

If stable is not dropped, at least have a page for known 'bad problems'

It's up to users to pay attention to the features they use and the problems they encounter, all of the information has already been provided. Aside from ITSs marked "crash" it's not possible for us to judge what's a "bad problem" since each users' environment differs so widely.

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.
