Subject Re: Continuing the shared modules merge
Date Fri, 17 Sep 2010 12:59:02 GMT
Sounds good, except one thing: As we have a separate shared-dsml
module and in your previous mail you said you want to keep it, I
wonder if it makes sense to keep shared-ldif in a separate module? An
the other side, LDIF is used all the time when dealing with LDAP.

Kind Regards,
