Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) update operations, such
as Add, Delete, and Modify operations, have atomic, consistency,
isolation, durability (ACID) properties.  Each of these update
operations act upon an entry.  It is often desirable to update two or
more entries in a single unit of interaction, a transaction.
Transactions are necessary to support a number of applications
including resource provisioning.  This document extends LDAP to
support transactions.  This document defines an Experimental 
Protocol for the Internet community.

This document is an Independent Submission.
