Shared is a dead space right now. I really don't mind merging API into 
shared, and killing API, except that for users, SHARED means absolutely 
nothing, when API is the Jira project they will use for bugs they meet 
when using the LDAP API. So IMHO, API is really more important than 
SHARED, even if SHARED is potentially something we may want to keep around.

What I would suggest here is the following :
- we keep SHARED space for future use, when we will reorganize shared to 
separate what is really common and what is specific to the API
- but at the same time, we move every opened issue from shared to API
- when we release the API, we also mark SHARED as released.

The idea is to avoid having pending issues into a space where they do 
not belongs to.

That's a different thing. We all want solid releases with OSGi and TxN, 
but we are nit close to be ready to provide them :) In the mean time, we 
also need a cleaner place for Studio and the Api...
