Regarding this topic:

I was extremly suprised to find that on my SuSE Linux System when going
from 7.0 to 7.1, LDAP was updated from 1.x to 2.x without warning and that
*nothing* was working anymore. It was impossible to get any clues about
the changes from 1.x to 2.x from www.openldap.org. It took me many days of
work to find out that half of the replication software I had developed for
1.x is now useless, and I am already busy for more than a week to fix

Well OK, for someone who is deeply into LDAP this may all be trivial and
to be expected, but for occasional users (oocasional in the sense that
they are not following the development of OpenLDAP very closely) I would
have liked some more documentation and warnings on www.openldap.org on
this very significant change.
