Hi Emmanuel, et al

Here is the link to Liferay where they list ADS.

You have a great project here. I played with RC3 for a few hours last 
night, and it looks like it is well on its way to being a solid piece of 
work. My needs are small as far as ldap goes, and having been a Java 
developer in a previous life, I might take a crack at some things that 
we need like crypt password support  ( I haven't look at the svn source, 
so I don't if anyone is already starting that....).

Also being a research institute we're not afraid of testing things out.  
I might be able to take over a few nodes from one our clusters to do 
some load testing or such, for time to time.

If you have any interest in computer graphics ( most of it also open 
source ) take a look it our site 

Thanks for SSL info.
