Fw: Help : Netscape user_oc.conf and user_at.conf to local.schema

Hi All,

 I had sent this mail yesterday, but received no responses. Anyway, I made
some progress into solving the problem by explicitly adding some attribute
types and objectclasses to the local.schema, and making sure that slapd
starts fine. But, transitioning so much configuration is still a problem. Is
there some perl script or C/Java program that someone knows of that can make
the transition quicly from the user_at.conf and user_oc.conf files into the
format that the local.schema file expects? Or at least make part of the
transition, and then the rest can be done manually ?

Any help will be welcome..
