My office-mate (jimh at u.washington.edu, not a subscriber of this list--yet) has recently 
abandoned OpenLDAP for Fedora Directory Service.  He especially appreciates the 
availability of directory maintenance tools.  Our current "Holy Grail" is a self-service 
system for users to maintain their published data.  Looks good so far.
