Thanks to Alex, the vendorVersion operational attribute is now present in the Root DSE: So
I close this issue.

> Apache DS already (0.9.1) provides the vendorName attribute. It would be nice if it would
also include the vendorVersion attribute.
> Some tools display the information or use it for server detection. It would make this
task easier for tool vendors. This is definitely not a very important feature, but it looks
better to the user if the client is able to state something different to "Vendor is unknown
or impossible to detect" (real world example of a popular tool).

> vendorVersion
>    This attribute contains a string which represents the version of the LDAP server implementation.
