>From the FAQ:
Group requires that the specified DN must contain the objectclass of
"groupOfNames", and that each member's DN is listed as a "member" attribute
of the group.

That means, you would need an entry like this:

dn: cn=group,ou=people,o=waterford,org
member=<add other members of the group here>

Your OpenLDAPaci attribute then of course must look like this:

OpenLDAPaci: 1#entry#grant;r,w,s,c;[all]#group#cn,group,ou=people,o=waterford.org

Are you sure that you really need ACIs. Maybe some static rules inside
slapd.conf would suffice.
