The implication is that 2.2.30 is one of the "Other OpenLDAP Releases".
In particular that its a patch release made to update an older release
of OpenLDAP Software.

Ok. that makes sense. I suppose my confusion sets the stage for my next question:

What is the relationship between the 2.2.x and the 2.3.x releases?

Up until yesterday, they seemed to be in lockstep, but I never found a
concise treatment of what was different between them.

I assume this has come up on the mailing lists before, but I couldn't find
the right buzzwords to zero in on a discussion.  Can you suggest any

Did you read the OpenLDAP roadmap? This usually lists general differences between the various releases.

Here's some off the top of my head:

Greater stability
New cn=config backend
Complete rewrite of the syncRepl protocol
Addition of delta-syncrepl
Many new overlays
Increased speed
-q (quick) option to the slap tools
