Right now we're waiting for the dev team to correct one of our LDAP API which was using substring search for distinguishedName attributes and that works on Oracle Internet Directory but as RFC 2256 say, section 5.50 more precisely, the 'client must not assume that LDAP servers are capable of performing attribute subtyping'. They are testing and after put on production we will be ready to change the last systems which still using Oralce Internet Directory.
OK, understood. Excellent news!

We'd welcome any contributions for our documentation, especially translations.
I'm aware there are lots of unfinished/started sections and others light on material. I've a big TODO list, but my time for docs this year has been absolutely shocking, unlike previous years. Apologies for this and to others on the project.
I'll be back full steam ahead when things get better, but in the mean time welcome any patches and will happily review and commit them once filed via our ITS at: http://www.openldap.org/its
