Subject [jira] Created: (DIRLDAP-25) Ldif files must begin with "version: 1"
Date Thu, 27 Jan 2005 23:28:21 GMT
Ldif files must begin with "version: 1"

         Key: DIRLDAP-25
     Project: Directory LDAP
        Type: Bug
 Environment: not relevant
    Reporter: Emmanuel Lecharny
 Assigned to: Alex Karasulu 
    Priority: Trivial

RFC 2849 states that a ldif file must start with the 'version: 1' string. LdifParserImpl does
accept files that don't respect this rule.

It was marked Trivial as this is really not an issue : Microsoft(TM) ldifde.exe tool accept
those kind of files (even worse : it does NOT accept files with a 'version: 1' string ...).
I think that it should be an option, but at least, it should verify that the version number
is '1', if present ! (p.5, par.1) 

BTW, RFC2849 is not very clear on this subject, and could be interpreted as "If <version-spec>
is absent, ..." instead of "If version number is absent..."
