Subject directory project in the incubator
Date Sat, 20 Dec 2003 16:38:29 GMT

We (three authors) write a little book about LDAP to appear in March 2004. 
It is in German, the title is "LDAP fuer Java-Entwickler" ("LDAP for Java 
developers"). In the introduction we recommend the readers to install a 
test server for their own experiments. We do not favour a concrete 
product, but try to give a little orientation. 

Our recommendations include a link to the LDAPd project (it seemed 
interesting to us because of the pure java implementation and its 
potential). I noticed that the project entered  Apache's incubator and is 
called "Directory" there. 

I think with this direction the project will be even more interesting to 
our readers. I would like to update the information, but unfortunatly 
there is not a lot to find on the incubators web site yet. I am interested 
in the project in general, but for our book some things would be 
especially interesting:

Is there already a final decision about the name of the project and the 
Will it be a Jakarta, or a Apache toplevel project -- or something else?
Is there a durable link we could use in our (printed) book?

Most of these things are probably not decided yet. I subscribed to your 
mailing list to keep in touch.

Thank you in advance + Greetings from Hamburg/Germany -- Stefan
