Re: adding attributes to an existing object class

Thanks for the reply, I suspected that is what I was going hear, if others are indeed adding attributes to an existing objectclass I'd like to hear about..

Most of the existing objectclasses are already a defacto standard; if
you want to add to one I would copy it and add whatever you want to the
copy.  That way if you ever switch LDAP implementations you won't have
to modify it, you just continue to use your own objectclass.
