okay so if i want the group acl to work what are the requirements, does it
just have to have the "member" attribute available? like this:
objectclass ( x.x.x.x.x.x.x NAME 'myPosixGroup' SUP top STRUCTURAL
DESC 'Abstraction of a group of accounts'
MUST ( cn $ gidNumber )
MAY ( userPassword $ memberUid $ description $ member ) )
and what do i use for the oid if i don't have registered space?
