Re: back-config design considerarions - Admin Guide fodder

 While back-config currently does no ACL checking, exposing it as its

The current code exposes olcDatabase={0}frontend as the first database in the cn=config tree, while really the frontendDB isn't part of the normal list of databases. back-config is actually the first database in the list of databases, and that's what you get when you use "-n 0" on the slapadd/slapcat command line. It's a bit strange, but I'm going to try going with
and see how that works out.
