Debian supports this path for compatibility with the rest of the world, of
course, but /etc/ldap/sasl2/slapd.conf may also be used for those who
would prefer to keep configuration files in /etc rather than putting them
I see that the general trend in Linux distributions is to standardize on
/etc/sasl2 as the configuration path, so we may migrate files from there
to /etc/sasl2 and drop the more peculiar /etc/ldap path in a later
release. (Opinions on that topic welcome. The approach currently taken
predates my involvement with the Debian OpenLDAP packages and looks like
it was intended to match how Postfix handled the same problem.)
Future versions of Debian will have /etc/sasl2 as default path and will
provide /etc/sasl and /usr/lib/sasl2 as fallback. Package maintainers who wish
to keep SASL config files close to their application may do that.
I see that neither of the issues mentioned in this thread are
in README.Debian, which is oversight on our part; I'll get that fixed.
