Actually this is exactly what I intended the developer guide to be:
for us and those that want to get involved with developing code for
ApacheDS.  It's
not there for people to use ADS for unit tests.  Using ADS for unit tests
for embedding should be in advanced sections of the UG no?

We could do that.  However DIRxDEV is there for general information on how
to check out and build the projects to get started.  And this is good where
is since it does not change much and describes how we do things across
here at Directory.  This is idea content to be exposed on the site.

Architectural details and the design of features introduced in specific
branches are
better off being put into the individual branch spaces. Like the dynamic
schema feature
which was introduced in 1.5.x.  How this was designed, why and various
implementation details and problems should not be put into DIRxDEV.
