I was looking for a solution to my problem (described in "" from ) and I found this post http://www.openldap.org/lists/openldap-software/200210/msg00328.html - it's about having multiple masters (change in one of them would be propagated to all other masters).
As this thread was two years old, here comes my question: is it possible to have multiple OpenLDAP masters? Is the code stable, or do one still have to change the sources to be able to run "multiple masters / multimasters"?

There are remnants of experimental multi-master code in OpenLDAP
Software.  I know little of it, I ignore it.

Remnants? So the whole idea was just abandoned?
Even "OpenLDAP 2.2 Administrator's Guide" says something like "slapd also includes experimental support for multi-master replication" (chapter 1.6).

So what's up with this multiple masters? Is it abandoned (as Kurt seems to indicate) or is it "working, but experimental" (as in the Admin's Guide)?
