Subject Re: Official Apache Directory Project Proposal Submission

I wasn't so much looking for projects to put under the DB wing, but 
thinking of people who might be interested in LDAPd. An LDAP most 
definately is *not* an RDBMS, but it is a protocol for accessing 
hierarchical databases. After filesystems and DNS, ldap's are probably 
the most widely used hierarchical databases around.

I for one would be more than happy to contribute LDAPd, particularly if 
said alternative is Java embedable.

So, if it comes to a vote and I am allowed to vote, it has my +1.
