Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (DIRLDAP-34) DnParser does not respect RFC2253
Date Sat, 05 Feb 2005 02:19:29 GMT
It may very well be designed poorly and in need of Alanification.  I 
don't remember too much of what I did in the past.  Looks like you have 
a handle on it though.  I'd have to go into the code to reassociate 
myself with it.  I will start doing that if you need me to.  Just let me 
know if you need a hand deciphering it.
