<obligatory>Woo, long time no post.</obligatory>

Things have been busy at the lab. Lots of sysadmin tasks not related to Ganymede, but Ganymede itself has progressed quite nicely. Version 1.0.6 came out a few weeks ago, and it is working wonderfully. I think I've finally got a good, clean, stable 1.0 build out now. <smirk>. Now all I need are users..

So, how does one get users? More importantly, how does one get contributors? Surely there have to be other people out there that have an interest in medium to large scale intelligent directory services management? There are several directions I have been considering going for Ganymede 1.1, to say nothing of 2.0, but with so little feedback and suggestions it's hard to know which improvement s (paging to disk of the database rather than holding everything in VM, enhanced flexibility of the type system, support for container based delegation, encryption of the RMI communications layer, support for a SOAP API) people would most benefit from.
