-------------------------------------------

Hi Emmanuel,

A 1.0 release is joyous event and I certainly don't want to distract you, Alex or anyone else
working from getting it ready!
I see ASF bureacracy is an effective inhibitor of quick commit access. "you ain't in sourceforge
territory no more, Bastiaan" ;-)
Won't mind jumping through the hoops at a later date, though. My company is in participating
in ApacheDS development.

I'm in the Netherlands, so we're in the same TZ. However I'm mostly limited to working on
office hours: in the evening family life is taking most of my time. Could have a try coming
thursday 20:30UTC. I'll be on #apache-directory on FreeNode as well as reachable by mail.

Bastiaan

> The apacheds RPM has several issues that prevent it from running out of the box:
> * the init script fails to run because APACHEDS_USER is set to $USER, which is not defined
at boot time
> * the init script fails to run bevause JAVA_HOME is not defined
> * the init script it is not registered to the init subsystem with chkconfig or similar
> * the config files are not marked as such, causing them to be silently overwritten when
one upgrades the RPM
> * the RPM filename is not conform conventions: ${name}-${version}-${release}.${arch}.rpm
> * the location of the files (/usr/local/apacheds-1.0_RC4) is version dependent, making
upgrades cumbsome. The admin has to relocate the partitions and config files on every updgrade.
> * the sources and docs are included in the rpm, even though they are not necessary for
operation.
> The RPM build mechanism for apacheds also has some issues:
> * runs rpmbuild as root, which is frowned upon by RPM gurus for security and safety reasons.
> * the generated src.rpm is not self contained, ie. one cannot do a 'rpmbuild --rebuild'
with it. 
> * the sudo mechanism is totally unnecessary
