Which matching rule should be used for the fax attribute?
using openldap 2.2.26
from reading RFC 2256 it seems fax should not have a matching rule.
Is there a matching rule I can use?
In OpenLDAP 2.2, things were changed so that to create a fax matching
rule you have to modify the code. I have done so for the RPM's I
maintain for UVM's OL implementation on RHEL3 and am willing to provide
you the patch deck if you want it.
I have not (nor will I) submit the patch deck to OL for inclusion because
as you noted, the RFC doesn't define any matching rules, so what I have
done and you are requesting violates the RFC.
I just populate a secondary attribute for the fax numbers and use that
I would note that nothing prevents you or others from writing an update to
the RFC that includes an equality matching rule.
