Re: Support for "codice fiscale" syntax

I think if it's general and not specific to your organization, but rather locale specific, it still falls under OpenLDAPs general use arm.

my 2 cents.

I've developed a module that implements support for the syntax of
"codice fiscale", the personal identification code used by the Italian
government to uniquely identify citizen. I think it might be of general
use, although possibly limited to Italian users, so I'd like to give it
a somewhat official and unbiased OID, rather than one under my arc or
SysNet's. Would it qualify as general enough for OpenLDAP's OID arc, at
least while experimental? I believe the need for a dedicated syntax (as
opposed to IA5string, printableString or so) is that its definition,
although flawed, needs to conform to quite a few restrictions, and a
syntax that allows to detect trivial errors and single out impossible
values would be definitely helpful. I need the OID in order to submit
code along with an ITS for contrib. An OID arc would be best, because
the kit consists in:

- a syntax
- an equality matching rule (cfMatch)
- an attribute spec (cf)
- an auxiliary objectClass spec (cfObject)

Please comment.
