hi andrew

following some information-updates regarding the olc-conversion
extensions in the
provision-backend  - script:

this is now fixed in 2.4.14  (ITS#5897).

i have tested and verified it. Howard told me, that this was fixed in 2.4.9
and subsequently broken again in 2.4.13. he just fixed it again in CVS,
and it will be fixed in 2.4.15.

we have the choice to remove the little workaround form provision-backend,
when 2.4.15 is out, or just keep it there, as it only will be activated,
if olcSyncprovConfig is not created properly during conversion
for cn=config.

how would you like to handle it?
