Subject DN, RDN, AVA heads up

Hi guys,

just to give you some feedback on what's going on in this area.

The errors we are trying to fix are the following :
1) We don't allow rename of entries where the user just want to change 
used case (like from cn=test to cn=TEST) (see
2) We don't keep the user provided value when doing a rename. (see
3) When creating an entry which RDN is cn=Doe+gn=John, we can do a 
lookup with this RDN, but doing the same lookup with the gn=John+cn=Doe 
returns nothing (see

In order to fix those 3 problems, I had to modify the way we handle AVAs 
and RDN (see my previous mails  about that). Right now, the AVA and RDN 
have been modified, and the code committed. I'm now fixing those three 
issues, and I think I'll be able to get them fixed by tonite.

Selcuk, I'm sorry, those fixes just sucked all my time and energy, I had 
barely no time to get back to the Txn branch. I intend to get back to it 

The reason why those fixes are critical is that Pierre-Arnaud wants to 
cut a new milestone for Studio, which uses the API, and he has many many 
fixes since the last release he done 2 weeks ago (mainly the critical 
binary attributes handling).

Hopefully, we may be able o cut the API and server release tonite or 

Thanks !
