Subject Re: Re: Official Apache Directory Project Proposal Submission
Date Thu, 11 Sep 2003 20:06:57 GMT
Would be great to have you involved.  If you would like to for the time being 
we can leverage the sourceforge infrastructure.  Let me know if there's any 
particular aspect you want to work on. 
 
You would probably be most interested in the ldapd.server.backend source 
subtree.  Take a look at the concept of a backend and the default 
implementations which use a hand woven database that uses JDBM B+Trees for 
indices.  Wes McKean has some ideas about refactoring some of this stuff so it 
can be used for other things in the future ;-).  I want to think about it but 
I really have to focus on other things like implementing alias dereferencing 
within search and other LDAP specific functionality. 
 
Feel free to join the mailing list and start getting involved.  I knew that 
involvement with Apache would help refine the community bringing eager people 
like yourself to the round table.  After all it is all about the community.   
 
Sincerely, 
Alex Karasulu
