Hi, List

I'm planning to store some 'versioned' data into an ldap directory, and
trying not to reinvent the wheel ... if anybody has any good resource to
share on the subject I'll be glad to hear.

There's no standard or transparent way to do this. The most straightforward approach is to use a multi-valued RDN for your entries, e.g. instead of
and so on.

Except of course, that you can no longer reference entries without knowing their version number.
