"min passwd length" works in 2.2.x though.
As for the LDAP password aging... You can also look at Kerberos as the
password backend for LDAP. Kerberos has his own password aging mechanism
that works perfectly. Not to mention that it does much more sense to
store passwords in a system that was initially (unlike LDAP) designed
for that purpose.
