This paper defines a multi-master, incremental replication protocol using the LDAP protocol [LDAPv3]. This protocol uses and builds upon previous LDAP support protocols, namely the changelog [change] and LDIF [LDIF] protocols. It defines the use of two types of transport protocols for replication data, and specifies the schema that must be supported by a server that wishes to participate in replication activities using this protocol. In addition, it specifies a conflict resolution mechanism for integrating updates from multiple servers.
