I am a "long time user" of OpenLDAP core parts.
If the core is very stable, I often received some request from application
developers, complaining about the lack of REST Web Service API to
manipulate their Directory objects.
Of course, as far as I could see, there is commercial solution available to
do this, or even a project using Spring.
But I could not see a simple proposal based on a simple Apache Server and
"fully free" of rights.
I also saw (https://www.openldap.org/devel/contributing.html) that "The
OpenLDAP Project welcomes contributions of independently-developed
stand-alone LDAP-related software packages suitable for distribution

Then, I would like to propose a full Open Source first realease of a CRUD
REST Web Service to manipulate OpenLDAP's Directory Objects.
I know that this first release is very limited in term of features, but I
think it does the "core job", and may be a common base to be enriched to
build a real OpenLDAP REST API ?
Package available here:
Thanks for your time reading this proposal, do not hesitate to ask if you
have any question.
