Re: Tool to covert from LDIF cn=config to slapd.conf?
Woah - no need to take anything personal.
We're not all devs. SysAdmin != Code Dev.
His memory /could/ be off - that's why he didn't state it as a fact.
And there's certainly more civil ways to suggest one checkout code from a deprecated branch.
If feedback isn't desired, simply state so on the mailing list site. Francis even seems like an informed /user/ of the openldap software.
I suggest you simply do a slapcat and then a sed replacement on the output to get what you need.
It won't help with cn=config; that'd really have to be done by hand, but I don't think it'd be too difficult.
My 2 cents,

If your memory is correct, you're welcome to submit patches.

All of the core overlays support cn=config.
You can always pull slurpd from CVS if you enjoy that sort of thing, no one
put a gun to your head to force you in any direction.
