Re: questions about collective attributes

Dear Pierangelo,

   Thank you very much!

I have read X.500 related docs and rfc3671 and rfc3672. But I also could not understand it very clearly.

   Is there any example talked about it to help me understand it clearly?

   Thank you very much!

I think it is intended to be simple; as the comments in the FAQ and in the code state, it's intended as a demonstrator of how simple collective attributes can be implemented by means of overlays.

The OpenLDAP Project is based on volunteering.  Feel free to submit one
by means of the ITS.

It might be moved to contrib/slapd-modules/, since it's not a core overlay.

"collective attributes"? I don't understand "collective attributes" very clearly.

RFC 3671 <http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3671.txt> (see also RFC 3672 <http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3672.txt>)?
