Indeed, it seems that the config schema does not include a "description" (or
similar) attribute which can be used freely in any config DIT entries for
If this is truly the case, wouldn't it be advisable to add such support to the
config schema? Of course, this means that all objectclass definitions should
include: ...MAY (... $ description ) ...
While description may help a little bit you cannot add comments for each
configuration directive for example ACLs.
Usually, in our DIT (which includes mainly people, mail alias, other
and DNS data) we use single-valued or multi-valued (per entry) "description"
attributes (as defined in RFC 4519) which serve very well our documentation
needs. These are already included in the objectClasses we use (based on
account, person, domain etc. objectClasses ).
I also use 'description' quite a lot especially since my web2ldap displays it
as bubble help in the browser. But it's not sufficient in this case.
