My 2.3.x LDAP boxen don't hit production for another 2 weeks, but to avoid 
more version creep (which affects lots of documentation, project plans, test 
plans etc) we'll probably be sticking with 2.3.9 + the odd patch from CVS, of 
course on + patch. Also, these boxen will initially only have 20 000 
or so entries (compared to the > 250 000 on our other set).

I was hoping to see some comments from Dusty Doris, whose 2.3.7 boxen with 
~~400 000 entries should have been in production for 3 weeks by now.
