I think it would be important to add some text in
http://www.openldap.org/doc/admin24/access-control.html regarding the
use of <control> keywords (i.e. stop, continue, break), esp "break".
These are not explained at all in the particular page, and IMHO they are
notsatisfactorily explained in FAQ-O-Matic as well (unless there is a
page which I missed, in which case please add the appropriate info in
the above page which is a main point of reference).
For example, the above man page does not even include an example with a
break keyword. At least one example should be included for children,
entry attributes (and the significance of break there should be explained).
There are some examples in FAQ-O-Matic, for example:
but they do not provide sufficient insight.
So, currently the significance and use of <control> keywords is obscure.
Although I am now (after almost two years) in a position to be able to
understand and handle ACLs to an extensive degree successfully (not
without effort), yet I am far from writing a tutorial or manual text, I
felt the above addition is a real need (esp. for new users) that I
should mention, asking the project team for it.
Regards and thanks for the project's efforts,
