Re: Syncprov checkpoint and sessionlog with cn=config
Quoting Howard Chu <firstname.lastname@example.org>:
You're welcome to submit a patch for the docs.
I may very well do that... once I develop a better understanding of it all.
As lead developer on the Project I focus on working on the things
that would be difficult for anyone else to do. For stuff like this
where the information is already available, it's up to the rest of
the community to fill in.
Okay, you take care of the progress and we'll take care of the poetry.
That sounds like a good arrangement. On the other hand, I would hope
that you occasionally review and edit these community contributions.
It would be unfortunate if some part of the documentation would, for
instance, reflect only my feeble understanding of it.
% ldapsearch -x -H ldap://:9011 -D cn=config -W -b
cn=schema,cn=config -s base | grep -A 2 OLcfgOv..:1
BTW, how did you know to look for "OLcfgOv..:1"?
People who understand LDAP don't need to be reminded of things like
this. They already understand that LDAP-based configuration means
that everything is already part of the LDAP schema, and LDAP schema
is self-describing so no external document is absolutely required.
(Conversely, people who grumble that LDAP-based config is too
complicated and a bad idea simply don't understand LDAP...)
In that case, it's safe to say that my desire for better documentation
has everything to do with my current level of understanding. I'd love
to say that I could figure it all out just by searching through the
LDAP schema, but I'm just not there yet.
