But if you did so, then why just not to stay with slapd.conf?
It still work and is far easier to understand and manage.
Because slapd.conf is deprecated and going away in openldap 2.5. So I'd
like to get familiar with it now before this happens :)
I understood that this was not the case, but I can be wrong. And if yes
I hope this decision could be reversed, but I'm not a developer so I can
just state my uneasiness about such a choice.
As I already said I'm just an old style Unix admin, and as such I don't
like at all to be forced to use any kind of program different from just
an editor to do a service configuration.
Having text configuration files (that can be commented and put under a
revision system) is a major strength for an Unix system, and giving it
away is very bad. I can afford a restart or a reload in any of the tens
of installation I have, but reworking the method we have to take trace
of configuration changes made in production servers will be a real pain.
I support the choice to make possible configuration change without
restarting the service, what I do not support is the choice to remove
the use of textual configuration files.
