Subject Re: ApacheDS for ASF
Date Fri, 11 Apr 2008 23:25:15 GMT
Just a quick heads up for Graham, mainly :

we have had a BoF last thursday where we discussed about using ADS to 
manage the ASF. To make a long story short, we agreed on a few things :
- we have to install ADS on the zone Graham created
- we must first try to manage our own users (ADS users)
- we have to define complete and validated uses-cases for what we want to do
- to avoid f*cking up access to the ASF servers for our users, we must 
be sure that we keep the current text file updated
- we might start with access to Confluence, as it's not a critical component
- some sites like Jim's page 
( or might also be seen as perfect 
target for initial experimentations
