That's not what I was looking for.
This approach takes the "mail" attribute out of an inetOrgPerson entry
and adds it to the nisMailAlias, again as a "mail" attribute.

In my example I need to get the "uid" attribute out of a posixAccount
element and add it to the posixGroup as a _"memberUid"_ attribute. In
other words, the target attribute is named differently from the source

That's why I suggested the extended syntax like

dynlist-attrset <group-oc> <URL-ad> [<member-ad>] [<result-ad>]
dynlist-attrset myposixGroup memberURL memberUid uid
