As I mentioned, I now have RPMs for OpenLDAP 2.0.x, OpenSSL, Cyrus-SASL, and also NSS_LDAP/PAM_LDAP (all in the NSS package). I'm now only maintaining Redhat 6.2 packages and TurboLinux 6 packages. That makes two LSDP-standard builds to make sure I'm not off my rocker. Redhat 7.0 has been dropped for now because of compiler/library issues (now well publicized). Check out the web site for a bit more details.

The group has grown just a tad, and some ideas are solidifying, if not just necessarily the names. I'll be trying to put together the web site with Luke Leighton using his modified mod_virgule. Once that is in place, information on various components of the project will hopefully be described in detail.

The main pieces that we are currently <focused> on is our backend daemon dubbed Kodama and a directory seeding framework/app called Shiido. For the permanant record, I can explain these two.

In Shinto (Japanese indigenous religion), there are various Yokai (demons), good and bad or indifferent. Kodama are specific Yokai which claim trees as their habitat. Since the backend is a hierarchy or tree service daemon, Kodama (tree demon) is the name :). Similarly, Shiido is Japanese for seed. Its the beginning of the tree, and thus my DS management and seeding app should be so aptly named.

Well, I'm boring everyone now...
