Re: Schema generator
Would it be helpfull for a site to be developed that officialy publishesYes, I think this would be a good idea. Also, there are a lot of schemas
floating around, and it would be ok to have a simple repository for them.
unoffical schema extensions? IE, register a OpenLDAP 'community' OID
root, and try use it in a semi-controled manner for extensions? If
paticular extensions prove usefull/common, then they could be moved to
either the main OpenLDAP OID space, or a RFC could be written up and
submitted for approvial.
THe ones I can think of right now is:
-> SuSEs email schema.
-> samba-tng and samba 2/3's schemas.
-> Radius schema
-> Ispman schema
-> qmails schema
-> midgards schema
These are just the ones I could think of right now. The point is that
for a few things today a lot of people create their own schemas (f.x.
adding the host or mail attribute to either the inetOrg oc or the
It would be cool to have one place to browse the schemas in the same way
as Alans ldapbrowser.

It would be useful and cool. But I fear it would only lend to people
making yet MORE schemas, when what we need is fewer schemas and more
cooperation (and fewer people treating LDAP like their RDBMS).
Would anyone find useful a wizard application that guides a user
through the process of creating a schema file (ie, objectClasses and
supporting attributeTypes)? I've received a feature request for
phpLDAPadmin to do just that. Since OpenLDAP doesn't allow
modification of the subschema via LDAP, I won't be able to update the
schema via the wizard, but I could display the text required to
configure the schema manually. Would anyone find this useful?
