As Kurt mentioned in the App Area, there will be an LDAP Bar BOF this Wednesday for those interested that are in Minneapolis.
Meet in the lobby at 8pm and we'll figure out a place to talk over dinner.
Overview (copied from initial LDAP BOF proposal):
Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) BOF
The purpose of this BOF is to discuss the formation of a working group to undertake LDAP standards work. It is conceived that the proposed WG would undertake both the revision of existing technical specifications for LDAP extensions and the engineering of new LDAP extensions.
There are numerous existing technical specifications for LDAP extensions. Most of the Standard Track specifications were published prior to the current LDAP "core" specification [RFC 4510] and are in the need of revision. In some cases, it may be more appropriate to move the extension off the Standards Track. While the work of determining which RFC should be revised (or moved off to a different track), and prioritization of the work, could be deferred to the WG, it is hoped that the BOF will reach some conclusions as to which revision work is of the highest priority.
There are also numerous extensions to LDAP which seem worthy of standardization. It is hoped that the BOF will reach some conclusion as to short list of new extension work items to be undertaken (at least initially) by the proposed WG. That short list might include, for instance, in LDAP Transactions and Extensions for X.500 Alignment.
By including both revision and new engineering work items in a single working group it is hoped that the sufficient participation levels will be maintained to make reasonable progress in both revision and new engineering work.
