local time and i want that openldap stored the local time. when he
stored the gmt time (current status), we have problems with
applications by search for entrys that changed in the last hour.
It is your application's responsibility to convert between local time
and GMT when interacting with the directory.
Remember that LDAP is a wide area system, accessible from anywhere in
the world. Storing local time in the directory would be meaningless for
clients that don't understand your timezone's rules, but all computer
systems know how to handle GMT.
