for years, as you can check here:

> The Sentry name has been used by joshuatreesoftware, symas, and subsequently released
as an open source product by the openldap foundation for over two years.  We believe using
the same name for a product that does roughly the same thing (role-based authorization) would
be confusing and dilute the value of both products.
