Wow you guys did great.  I'm glad these releases are happening without any help from me.  I could get hit by a trunk and things would still operate as usual.

Hi guys,

this is it :

After a full week of effort, we get back to a normal situation where the trunk builds. As usual, the initial estimation (1 day to refactor the Exceptions) was grossly underestimated, but anyway, we can be happy that it didn't last 2 months :)

I would like to thank Kiran, without him, this effort would have taken way more time. It was not funny everyday, but as we were waiting for the release to be completed, we had time to work on such a big refactoring at the same time.

That gives me the opportunity to thank Pierre-Arnaud who did a great job releasing the server today.

So we not only have a trunk building, but also a 1.5.6 server available, a shared-0.9.18 version, and last, not least, a very first version of the new Ldap API, 0.1.0 !

Guys, you did a great job this week. Well, as usual :-)

I think I don't have to mention the fact that this achievement is of course the result of many other contributions, so thank to Stefan (S and Z), Felix, of course - we all have to realise that Felix has been a MAJOR contributor to the build system this last year, and on many less than funny tasks like moving all the error messages into i18n projects - and also Alex who is still around, keeping all together and on track !

Pfewww, guys, I'm really, really pleased today !

PS : no need to pat me on the back, I'm also congratulating myself :) Who else will do, otherwise ? ;)
