When you say "Original" what time period do you mean? ...and therefore for "Update" when do you mean?


I'm looking at 1.4.0 and it has:
objectIdentifier TERENA 1.3.6.1.4.1.25178 

objectIdentifier schac TERENA:1
objectIdentifier schacExperimental schac:0
objectIdentifier schacObjectClass schac:1
objectIdentifier schacAttributeType schac:2
objectIdentifier schacExpObjClass schacExperimental:1
objectIdentifier schacExpAttr schacExperimental:2

so therefore "Current" is:

1.3.6.1.4.1.25178.1.0.1 <-- schac experimental object class
1.3.6.1.4.1.25178.1.0.2 <-- schac experimental attrs

1.3.6.1.4.1.25178.1.1 <-- schac object class(es)
1.3.6.1.4.1.25178.1.2 <-- schac attrs

From all the versions of SCHAC:

2 objectIdentifier schac RedIRIS:4.6
5 objectIdentifier schac TERENA:1 <-- base of SCHAC changed from v1.1.1 onward

7 objectIdentifier schacObjectClass schac:1 <-- good no change here (except for 1.1.1 base)
7 objectIdentifier schacAttributeType schac:2

2 objectIdentifier schacExperimental schac:0 <-- introduced in 1.4.0 + later
2 objectIdentifier schacExpAttr schacExperimental:2
2 objectIdentifier schacExpObjClass schacExperimental:1


so I'm really confused about redefining:

1.3.6.1.4.1.25178.1.1 <-- schac object class(es)
to:
“1.3.6.1.4.1.25178.1.1 - Attributes that have been accepted as official in SCHAC”

and

1.3.6.1.4.1.25178.1.2 <-- schac attrs
to:
“1.3.6.1.4.1.25178.1.2 - SCHAC attributes that are being tested or were tested at some point in time.”
particularly for those that have performed a schema extension within LDAP.

I'm probably missing something here - I'm either way off base - or very confused.

My head hurts. Who will get bitten by this: everyone, those have
deployed current OIDs or nobody at all?
