Description of problem:
On my RedHat 9 you could add mail aliases to the LDAP directory when
using LDAP for authentication etc.
When migrating the LDAP directory from RH9 to Fedora I ran into the
The objectclass nisMailAlias and rfc822MailMember attribute are no
longer present. I had to take the rfc822-MailMember.schema file from
the /etc/openldap/schema/redhat directory of a RH9 box (and add it to
the slapd.conf file) to enable storage of mail aliases
(The PADL.com conversion scripts also fail)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.slapcat of a LDAP directory containing mail aliases
2.slapadd of the LDIF file on a Fedora box
Actual Results: Error message
Expected Results: No errors and a filled LDAP directory
I think this bug is similar to bug 109656.
According to changelog

also solves the problem. Question is if this should be done by default
(or at least included in the docs)
Add my vote for making this the default, since it preserves
compatibility with previous behaviour.
