As everyone on this list knows my grammar and spelling is pretty bad but 
I will take a few passes in reviewing your stuff for sure.  I might 
learn a thing or two I've already forgotten about ApacheDS :).

What I would like to do is complete a few things right now to get Norval 
and Emmanuel in gear with schema subsystem redesign.  That way they can 
get to work on somethings.  Then I can research some replication issues 
to get Mitosis working.

By that time I think it is right before Xmas.  Then I can review a good 
chunk of the work you've put out there.  Is this ok?  I can start 
reviewing now but my context switching from English mode to Java mode is 
a bit expensive :).

Yep! Hey perhaps Ersin it might be faster for you to transpose some of 
the workshop presentation and examples to a tutorial in the advanced 

I'm specifically talking about this material here:
