Well, i haven't had any time yet of cleaning it up, and atm it doesn't

with the cn=config adaptation, and put it somewhere for download (and since i'm
a Mageia packager probably package it for mageia).
i can probably give you it privately, if you're urgently insterested.
Quite nice of you. Actually, I am not in a panic (thankfully);
additionally I am not a developer, so it would not be easy for me to
work on it, even if I would surely have uses for it.
Thinking from an admin's point of view, I look forward to something that
would be usable, safe and (at least) a bit flexible, hopefully without
resorting to (anything more than very basic high-level) programming.
I would think that for such an overlay to be generic enough, it should
be able to accept a config on what attribute(s) we want to monitor
(whose change will trigger an event), and then provide a notification
with (probably the initial and) the new value of the attribute and call
an external command (using back-sock?). [It could also be extended to
allow the definition of filters to narrow the monitoring range, if needed.]
Such an overlay, I humbly believe, would be a valuable addition to
openldap standard collection of overlays.
All the best,
