Hi guys,

as we have decided to deliver a 1.5.3 release in the next few weeks, and as it will be mainly a bug fix release, here is a status of the current bugs.

We have 232 open issues (quite a huge number), out of which 90 are set to be fixed in 1.5.3, 96 are unscheduled.

It would be great if the unscheduled issues can be scheduled. Also please just fill the missing issues so that we can put as much fix as possible into the 1.5.3 release !

If you have time to add or propose some unit tests for the existing issues, it would be very appreciated !

We have only 42 open bugs scheduled to be fixed for 1.5.3, surprisingly a lower number than expected (or feared :). Here are the status for these bugs :

Seems like this count is up to 89 but not many are that critical.  Going to review your list here below once again to push this release out.

3 bugs are blockers :

* https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRSERVER-1166
desc : a lot of Persistent searches may exhaust the available threads
status : To be investigated. It _may_ be postponned as PS is not really used much.

Changed this one's status into won't fix since I don't think it's really an issue but in 1.5.4 we have that new protocol-ldap module and the new event notification mechanism so I'll keep an eye out on not tying up a thread for PS.

* https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRSERVER-1161
desc : search results are not streamed to the client until final done response is queued
status : A patch has been submitted by Norval, we have to double check that it's OK, or if we have to push some fix into MINA

This one is important but need some status on where we are with it.  I have ideas on how we can fix this issue without fixes to MINA but we can fix MINA too if there's a specific fault in MINA.

* https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRSERVER-832 :
desc : Added Attributes are all case sensitive
status : currently in progress, and will be fixed for 1.5.3, as we just have to check that with the new ServerEntry API, we don't have any more code which do String sensitive comparisons

I think we fixed this no? Maybe switching over to using ServerEntry in the AddRequest and SearchResultEntryResponse objects may cap this one off.  Let me know what you want me to do here.

2 bugs are criticals :
desc: no credentials required to shut down server from in-vm
status: This is a critical issue, I think.

Yeah this is not necessary at all.  If you're in the same process space you will be able to do this.  For stored procedures we need to protect against this eventually with a security manager but that can be done later.

decs: Aborting a client search does not stop the search
status: To be fixed

That's bad but might be a design flaw that will be fixed by Cursors.  I should build into the Cursor interface the innate ability to abandon it.  I'll update this issue but we may need to push this one off to 1.5.4 when Cursors make their debut.
Going to ignore most of these below and just focus on the criticals.  I'll have an updated release plan which I will send on this thread after peering into jira a bit longer.
