      Description

      GLUE 2 defines an ExtendedBoolean type with values true/false/undefined (in lower case). The current LDAP schema defines these using the LDAP boolean type (OID 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.7), but this has allowed values of TRUE/FALSE (uppercase) and no "undefined". Following a discussion in the GLUE WG the decision is that this should be changed to use the DirectoryString type like most other attributes, and the corresponding matching rules. This is a safe change in itself since both sets of attribute values will be allowed in a string, but information providers will not be able to change until all grid services are upgraded which is likely to take some time, so we will have to record this as a known issue. This will have implications for any clients which use these attributes, they should be coded to deal with both situations. There are however only a few affected attributes.
