The ContextEntry is associated with the partition, ie with dc=sevenSeas.
Here, you have created another entry which DN is
o=sevenSeas,dc=sevenSeas. This is a plain new entry, not a Context entry.

I *think* that whe you create the partition, the context entry is now
automatically created (to be checked), and if so, we have to fix the
documentation to reflect this feature.

They are plain text document, using markdown. They are available at
Any patch on those files (and that can include fixes to the bad english
used) is very welcomed (the best way to submit patches is to create a
JIRA - see - and to
attach a diff to it).

Many thanks !
