Subject Re: [ApacheDS] Mitosis status inquiry
Date Fri, 21 Sep 2007 20:41:34 GMT
Hi Alex,

For my fairly limited use mitosis is performing very well.

I've slacked off a bit over the last few weeks but will try to get back 
onto it soon.

For stable use there is still that critical issue where a change on the 
same entry on multiple servers will lead to a permanently inconsistent 
state.  I'll make that my priority soon.

I also recently came across a minor timeout issue which I think is a 
problem in MINA.  I'll investigate that more soon too.

Aside from that there are niggling issues like replication of schema 
changes.  Once these issues have been worked out I think we have a 
stable replication system.

There are some features that I guess we really need to get in for it to 
actually be useful for the majority of users though.  The main things 
that come to mind are selective replication, encryption, schedules and 
removing the dependency on Derby.

I know you and Ersin are thinking about possible design changes although 
to me those can be done incrementally later on as required.  I doubt 
that I will be a driving force behind these changes but am willing to help.
