I have been using Openldap with ACI,s enabled for quite a while. Is
their some reason the configure option shows it as experimental still?

With OpenLDAP 2.3, it will be possible to replace all your *.conf files with the new back-config DB. This will allow ACL's to be modified on the fly, and remove the need for ACI's at all. ACL's are somewhat more powerful than ACI's, so I myself see little reason for them to even remain once OL 2.3 is released.

than ever in the present religio-political climate. They often focus on
fantasy and sf books, which foster that deadly enemy to bigotry and blind
faith, the imagination." -- Ursula K. Le Guin
