Hello, Howard

I'm sorry that it took so long to respond but we needed to figure out how we will arrange this.

So we are going to take a look at the back-sql tickets together with Eetu next Friday and start working from there. At some point (probably at the start of September) a third person will join us in the effort and I will gradually move away from the back-sql stuff.

Best regards

The intensity of effort is up to you. There are currently 26 tickets in the ITS for back-sql that
have never been investigated. I have no idea how long any of them would take to address. It's up
to you to see how much can be done between releases.

We already may have a suitable candidate for you. I keep you posted about it once he has had some time to familiarise himself with the back-sql. Depending on the workload that comes from the maintenance of the back-sql I might be willing to temporarily look over things regarding that component if it would make it more probable to stay in the future releases of the OpenLDAP.
