Re: deleting ACL

something like

access to dn=".*,dc=parent,dc=com"
       by * write

gives everybody write access to entries stored below "dc=parent,dc=com", 
(e.g. "uid=foo,dc=parent,dc=com") but not to "dc=parent,dc=com" it self. 
of course you can restrict access by specifying something else than "*" 
in the second line..
