The collect overlay is used to provide a relatively coarse
implementation of RFC 3671 collective attributes. In X.500, a
collective attribute is "a user attribute whose values are the same
for each member of an entry collection".
Collective attributes are added to entries returned by a search
operation when the entry is within the scope of the related ancestor.
Collective attributes can only be modified when the modification
affects the related ancestor.
This slapd.conf option applies to the collect overlay. It should
appear after the overlay directive.
collectinfo <DN> <attrlist>
Specify the DN of the ancestor entry and the set of related
collective attributes, where attrlist is a comma-separated
list of attributes. The DN should be within the naming
context of the database.
