I just wanted to note that I 100% agree with your statement about how 
important standard compliance is; especially in the area I work (EAI). 
It therefore perfectly fits that correctness was one of the primary 
goals ApacheDS 1.0 planned to achieve.

It is difficult to measure standard compliance. Passing the LDAP 
certification of the Open Group
was one idea we had to get feedback in this area.

ApacheDS 1.0 get certified by the Open Group in Oct. 2006, and we will 
continue to release exclusively versions which fulfill their 
requirements (knowing that the tests are not complete; and therefore 
can't *prove* correctness).
