Re: dn.exact vs dn.base

[sorry, should have gone to the list]

This gives 'uid=userx,...' access to 'ou=system,...' _and everything
below it_.

access to dn.exact="ou=system,dc=example,dc=com"
   by dn.base="uid=userx,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com" write

While this is the opposite - it gives 'uid=userx,...' and any objects below
this (not much point in this exact example :) to ONLY the base object

For example:

----- s n i p -----
access to dn.exact=""
        by domain.subtree="bayour.com" read
        by peername.ip="127\.0\.0\.1" read
        by peername.ip="192\.168\.69\.8" read
        by peername.path="/var/run/slapd/ldapi" read
----- s n i p -----

This gives almost anonymous access to certain attributes to the base DN...
