Sun would be interested in participating in the interoperability
We would have 3 servers to test against: Sun Directory Server, Sun
Directory Proxy Server and OpenDS.
Who else is participating ?
I've seen interest from Novell and Michael Stroeder so far.
I can bring the Isode M-Vault (server) and Sodium Sync (client). I
suspect having OpenLDAP there will not be a problem. Will check to
see if Apache DS can be there. Others are, of course, quite welcomed.
