Short Description

The LDAP Schema Converter currently converts objectclass and attribute type descriptions from the LDAPv3 to the slapd.conf format.

The LDAPv3 schema format is specified in rfc2252. rfc2256 defines objektclasses und attributtypes for Users/Persons. Might be interesting for you.

Future Extensions

In case I should ever find some time, I could extend the grammar descriptions, improve the rules for mapping of superclasses and syntax definitions. (Maybe even a GUI could make sense for manipulating such rules.)

However I hardly ever have time left for coding.
