Re: Question about writing custom backends for openldap

I have read the overlay introduction document and I think overlays can
do everything I need to do. From my reading overlays can:
1. modify any ldap request and then pass it on to the backend
2. respond to a request, bypassing the backend altogether
3. modify a response from the backend before passing it to the frontend
4. replace a response from the backend
Is this correct?
Anything regarding slapd internals will be discussed on the -devel list,
so you should subscribe to that list to stay up to date.
I'll being to investigate this path for basing my project on. I'll
probably have a few programming questions later. Should those be asked
here or on the devel list?
