Thanks for confirming that. > You shouldn't even need to ask this question. As said the automatic conversion hunks out the line breaks found in in the original slapd.conf and many attributes in back-config gets extra checking anyway. So the question whether some attribute values might get stored sanitized is not that false. I think you should appreciate client developers clarifying possible interop issues in advance. So there's nothing justifying your arrogant attitude. > Additional white space introduced when displaying as LDIF (e.g. for > line-wrapping) is strictly an LDIF concern; it is not part of the actual > attribute values. I already know that very well. This was not the point here. Ciao, Michael.
