dynlist/dyngroup allow you to create groups from attributes present in

entries, rather than using a static list of members.

For example, I could have something like:

dn: uid=joe,cn=people,dc=my,dc=domain
groupAttr: admins
groupAttr: users
groupAttr: staff

Then I could have a dynamic group definition that made it so everyone
"groupAttr=staff" a member of that particular group.  If they lose that

attribute from their entry, they are no longer in that group.  If they
it, they are.
