I think the best way for me to get started is to put together a series
of unit tests which I can run and experiment with different ways of
interfacing with the Apache DS server.  It will also benefit everyone
else on the project.

learn how to integrate their apps with Apache DS.  And I may just do a
couple of integrations for the most popular community projects to kick
it off.
