To clarify the bootstrapping process that we're envisoning for ApacheDS, I've written up the following page in the wiki . Use the link above instead since it's not going to hit confluence and shows the fast exported page. Take a look an provide your feedback here. We can later adapt this page to include your comments and recommendations. So let's kick this off with some thoughts?
