Thanks for the proposal.

I agree that Fortress is a good fit to the other projects at Apache
Directory. So if you and others think that Fortress should be a
sub-project then I won't oppose.

However I also have concerns. The Directory project already has 5
subprojects, 3 of them with more then 200k LOC each, but only 2 active
committers. I just want to avoid that we inject yet another code drop
that nobody maintains later.

Also, can you please tell us the source repositories? I found [1], which
projects do you want to donate, those 4 (core, commander, enmasse, and
realm) or just part of them? Or are there other projects?

Kind Regards,
