Hi Alex, I'm just a directory user but I have a question: can you
explain who are you representing (who is included in your "we")?

IMHO (I'm not a directory developer, but an ASF committer) Enrique idea
to test the code against dnsjava makes a lot of sense. dnsjava is used
by a lot of researchers to run tests because it is widely adopted and
often takes into considerations special cases that are not well
described in RFC but are de-facto known issues of the DNS world.

Enrique explained that he doesn't intend to create a standalone project,
but the sentence above is conflicting with the fact that MINA has been
incubated by the directory project and IMHO in a succesfully way.

My 2 cents,
