of date. Is my kind of LDAP setup supported?

It's not completely dead, they've even done a couple of releases
.   Coming from mostly Apache projects it's strange to me not to see
discussion, release votes, and announcements, but Codehaus doesn't
have the same rules.  If you look at the scm@redback list, that's
where all the activity (JIRA and commits) is.

Ping the Redback dev list and see if someone can update the website.
Here's the source of the page you mentioned, you can see if anything
has changed since it was last published:

I don't know the answer to your original question though.  I've
managed to get it minimally working against ApacheDS, but nothing more
complicated than that.
