Subject Re: Draft Proposal for 'LDAP proxy GUI' Project Idea
Date Wed, 24 Mar 2010 07:03:45 GMT
Dear Directory Developers,

Thanks for all the feedback in the ML and IRC regarding my initial
draft for the LDAP diagnostic tool plugin to Apache Directory Studio
in GSoC 2010. I have come up with a newer version of the document with
the changes you have mentioned. Specifically, I have elaborated about
the use cases of it as a debugging tool, implementation details about
the architecture (with a diagram) etc. and changed the references to
newer versions of RFCs

New link to the 'LDAP diagnostic tool plugin to Apache Directory
Studio' project proposal draft:

Your comments and feedback are very much appreciated as always.
