Re: Doc API for overlay...

Use the source! ;-)


* Read servers/slapd/overlays/*
* collect.c is an example by Howard.
* Read slapover.txt in that directory too.
* Make sure you copy/reference ones that support dynamic config to work
well with 2.4.x (they'll have schema definitions embedded in them)

Nicely commented overlay at:


auditlog.c is nice and short (as should be all overlays, as that's their
point ;-) )

That should get you going.

This will be in a developer section of the main 2.4 guide soonish.
