Thisd article is an interesting read, especially as - by pure chance - 
2.4.23 is the lastest release officially declared stable of OpenLDAP.

On one hand declaring some versions as stable and on the other hand 
recommending people not to use those stable versions when they are provided by 
distributions as well as not giving any kind of support for releases declared 
stable  (with the exception of the standard "ugrade to the latest release"), I 
consider OpenLDAP project's behaviour as contradictory.

Why not simply giving up the "Stable" column on 
http://www.openldap.org/software/download/ when these is no difference between 
a stable release and any other release w.r.t. long term support, ...

BTW: Debian testing has OpenLDAP 2.4.28
