authentication. That code is in the contrib/slapd-modules/passwd directory in HEAD and will also be in 2.4.

For clarification: does "will also be in 2.4" mean that this will be mainstreamed (e.g. non-contrib) in 2.4, or just a reassurance that it's not going away from contrib during 2.4?

It will be in contrib in 2.4, the same as it is in HEAD. Features of this sort will never be "mainstreamed" - it is not a core feature, and we provide APIs for dynamically loading these things so they can continue to be developed outside the core.
