I'd be more than happy to help align the contribution to our implementation.
One detail is that our matching rules have an assertion value which is not empty. It's a string which represents an "Offset" to the current time.
Now +/- Offset, where the offset can be specified in seconds, minutes, hours, days or weeks (s, m, h, d, w).
The offset can be used to deal with client timezones.

OpenDS also has matching rules defined for comparing timestamp attributes to

this is a small, self-contained project that should be simple for someone to
jump in on.

Of course we've had this as a contribution in ITS#6247 for more than a month. It seems all that's needed is to align the matching rule name and OID with the ones that OpenDS is using.
