Hi guys,

BigBang is almost ok, but we still have problem in two areas.

- Authentication. We have to review all the authentication mechanism, by 
getting the old LdapProtocol out of our way, and switching to the new 
LdapProtocol. The change will be drastic, but will have the advantage of 
giving us more control on what is done, and also to remove JNDI from 
this part (JNDI is really a burden when it comes to authentication).

We will work on this with Alex next week, it should take us a day to fix 

- Persistent search. None of the tests are currently working. I doubt 
that the new version had ever worked. I let it on Alex plate, as it's a 
brand new implementation, and I don't want to mess with it right now.

We also have problems in replication, but nothing really bad (just the 
OperationContext not being used).

The vote for 1.5.3 is nw closed, I will send a mail about the result, so 
we are ready to get bigbang work and move it to 1.5.4 branch. And then 
it will be the end of the bigbang branch !

Thanks !
