Unfortunately, the .schema does not include the descriptions of the matching
rules and syntaxes, but only the descriptions of attribute types and object
classes (that's not a bug...).

That's why we ship with the application "improved" versions of the .schema
files (which are XML files actually) that include the descriptions of all
the elements (attribute types, object classes, matching rules and syntaxes).

Emmanuel has given you the right hint on how to use them.

Now, the 20 errors you're getting when you import those internal "improved"
versions are, i'm sad to say that, plain normal.

When I generated the "improved" schema files from a fresh install of the
latest version of OpenLDAP, I got those errors and could not find how to
them too.

I need to take a look at that very soon and see if I can find why I'm
getting the errors and where are those syntaxes and matching rules.

I'm going to open a JIRA for this. Hopefully, we can address this issue for
the next version of Studio.
