Ah.  Ok, the goal is to be able to instantiate additional replicas.
However, when I try, I get:

[13/Oct/2010:10:04:24 -0400] - import userRoot: Import failed.
[13/Oct/2010:10:04:24 -0400] - process_bulk_import_op: NULL backend

I am told this could be fixed with 389-ds-base, though I cannot be certain.

If I can resolve the issue of creating additional replicas, there would
not necessarily be a compelling reason for me to update to 389-ds-base,
and I would happily stay running fedora-ds-base-1.1.3
