reducing information duplication
I'm looking for a way to reduce information duplication in an LDAP
directory, using the equivalence of joint in SQL databases. Basically,
all my user entries (inetorgperson + posixAccount) need to have a
'secretary' and a 'manager' field, but given than all users from the
same group have the same secretary and the same manager, I'd prefer to
refer to them at the group level, and refer to the group from the user
I've had a quick look at slapo-dynlist man page, it seems it could
achieve it using 'see-also' attribute to refer to the group dn, and
probably an additional schema to add 'secretary' and 'manager'
attributes to my group entries (posixGroup + groupOfNames).
Ideally, I would also use the same system to get the userGid attribute
for the users.
Does it sound like a good idea ?
