And note that some features, such as multi-master replication,
will remain to be experimental even after release.  Whether or
not a particular build of OpenLDAP is "stable" for your use is
up to you to decide (and this applies to even those releases
which we label as "stable"... see http://www.openldap.org/software/download/
for a clarification as to the use of the term stable as it applies
to OpenLDAP releases).
