Re: Supported RFC's and "features"

I'm also looking to feature match the Sun directory server (since that's

how important lack of said function is to us.
That's a fair statement. I'll note that many companies are doing this exact
same evaluation, it's a well-trodden path. The first several overlays released
in OpenLDAP 2.3 were commissioned by Hewlett-Packard to provide the features
they needed to allow their own migration off Sun servers to OpenLDAP.
Ultimately when someone is sufficiently motivated, whatever is desired will
get implemented. (HP transitioned their entire internal global IT off of SunDS
to OpenLDAP a year or so ago. In their case, they specified exactly what
server/features they wanted, and that's what they got.)
