Re: slapo-dynlist search member=value search?

I imagined that OpenLDAP maintained a cache for dynamic groups (that's how I understood "this exploits slapd group caching capabilities" in the FAQ) in order to do a search on (member=member'sDN).

Note that the FAQ statement that you misquoted actually says:

For compare operations on the member attribute, all the values of the memberURL attribute of groupOfURLs objects are compared until a match is found; this exploits slapd group caching capabilities.

I.e., this only applies to the LDAP Compare operation, not to Search operations. Frankly the mention of slapd group caching here is bogus, since group caching only benefits ACL performance when processing multiple responses in a Search operation.
