Hi, Trustin,

I am really excited to hear that you are hoping to get more involved in 
not just OSGi but also the "realm controller" protocol providers.  While 
I work to alleviate the user support issues and to write documentation 
specific to the provider implementations, a really great way to start to 
come up to speed on DNS, DHCP, Kerberos, Change Password, and NTP is by 
reading the IETF specifications that these protocols are based on.  If 
you wanted I could put together a reading list of the relevant IETF 
RFC's, as well as the page numbers and chapters of the OSGi R4 
specification, since much of the R4 spec does not apply to our project.
