Thanks a lot :)

That's a great news for us that you successfully implemented what you 
needed using ADS. We just designed this server (I say 'we', but this was 
mainly Alex hard work !) to allow users to extend it to a point it fits 
their needs.

Thank you very much for having validating the vision Alex had 5 years 
ago, and that we are now trying to stabilize and carry to the next big 
step : ADS in production all obver the world :)

And thanks again to you (ADS users) for making ADS being used, 
discovering bugs that the next users won't have as soon as we will fix 
them. Apache is just about this : developper and users, and also users 
becoming committers to help new users, and so on!

Feel free to participate to the effort, Mark !
