Most of the OpenLDAP overlays are now compiled as dynamic modules in our
packages. If you want to use any of these in your setup make sure to put
the correct "olcModuleLoad" or "moduleload" statements in your configuration.

ppolicy (a LDAP Password Policy implementation)
Documentations for the overlays can be found in the respective man pages
(named "slapo-<overlay-name>") or the OpenLDAP Administration Guide which
is part of the "openldap2-doc" package.
