 <p>In 2009 a small team of developers[1], who also happen to be brothers, began work
on the <em>Open Access Manager</em> concept.  From its very beginning, the driving
push behind the project was the world needs a standards-based access control system that is
wholly open source.  In particular, the Role-Based Access Control (ANSI INCITS 359) standard
was a focal point, although that adherence brought with it the need for expanded coverage
into other areas of access control and administration.  After a couple of years of coding
in their spare time, the brothers unveiled the project at the 2011 LDAPCon in Heidelberg,
and with it a new name - <em>Fortress</em>.  At the same time, it was announced
that the OpenLDAP foundation would sponsor the project and it would be released under a BSD-style
variant of an Open Source Software license.</p>
 <p>That first release, back in 2011, included just the fortress core and realm components,
but development of the web interface (commander) and rest server (enmasse) was already underway.
 A few more years saw many more releases and the eventual completion of the commander and
enmasse rounding out the entire product line into what's available today.</p>
 <p>Eventually, it was understood that nights and weekends of a few developers isn't
enough and so if the Fortress concept was to survive, it had to be expanded into a larger
field.  In 2014 the Fortress project moved from its OpenLDAP foundation home into the ASF
as a subproject of the Apache Directory.</p>
-<p>This new home proved worthy as the influx of new talent gained from the Apache Directory
project, plus added exposure to the community brought with it many gains and improvements.
 Eventually, Fortress may have to move again.  But the next time it'll spin off its worthy
mentor, Apache Directory, and become a top-level project.  But we're not ready for that move
just yet...   </p>
