Hi All,

I can't understand why I haven't received a few recent messages sent to
the mailing list. I've checked that I'm subscribed. Anyway,

Are you sure the tags are case sensitive?
The other thing: I'd personally prefer (I'm not insisting though :-) "_"
instead of "-".
In any case, if we're going to have branches dependant on the OpenLDAP
API support, they could be called just OPENLDAP_1 or similar, while
releases could be named REL_1_11 and REL_1_10.

Unfortunately, I don't have enough experience in CVS to make branches.
Could somebody do that?
