Re: OL 2.2 and syncrepl vs slurpd

Good day, folks;
It appears the handwriting is on the wall that slurpd is going to be
dropped fairly soon (since it hasn't been updated since 2.0 and
doesn't work with the config backend in 2.3).
I'm still working with OL 2.2 (on RedHat Enterprise Linux 3 and 4 --
locally built RPM's though) and seeing that Howard has posted that
syncrepl should not be used with 2.2 back in the summer -- I'm
wondering if that is still the prevailing thought or if syncrepl has
been improved in the 2.2.30 release enough that I could convert to
using syncrepl now and convert to OL 2.3 in the spring or summer (the
next time the student body is gone for a length of time).
Just to add to Ando's reply - using the OL 2.2 consumer with an OL 2.3
provider should be safe.
I may push for dropping slurpd from OL 2.4, based on some replication
refactoring that Ando has suggested.
