Yes LDAPd has been brought over to Apache.  The LDAPd server itself 
and several of its API's will become projects within an Apache
top-level at once it graduates the incubator.

The server's new name and latest design is Eve (as opposed to AD/AM)

Yes the server's name is Eve - it will be the flagship server for
the project like Tomcat is for jakarta.

There will be a TLP as soon as 
Eve and its ancillary projects makes it out of the incubator.
BTW other JNDI projects that were previously in the commons
will also be hosted as projects under this TLP.

Stay tuned.  I just got in touch with Paul Bonkowski to 
see if he can whip something up for you soon.  At least 
we can keep a little info page for you until we have 
get out of the incubator and have a site for the TLP.

Cool stay in touch and let your readers know about us and
this list.  We hope to make Eve everything they desire.
