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.
