OODS begins weekly topic collaboration

Oct 20, 2000, 14:18 (0 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to frankc for this announcement. ]

The Open Object Directory Services group has started to meet on a weekly basis to cover architectural topics for this exciting system development.

Open Object Directory Services - Overview
The Open Object Directory Services (OODS) project aims to make full-fledged open source object-based directory services into reality. The project is a result of over a year of development time invested in the Linux Knowledge Base Project (LKB) in which pseudo directory services were attempted using PHP and MySQL. It became apparent over time that the desired functionality simply could not be achieved using the technology chosen at the time the project was born. Although OODS is being spearheaded by members of the LKB team, it is a very different project entirely and we welcome anyone wishing to support an open source directory service initiative.

You can visit the homepage of OODS to get the latest in news, system developments, documentation, or join the mailing list.

The weekly meetings schedule are Mondays-8:30 PM EDT, generously hosted by Seul.Org , just point your chat client at cran.seul.org port 7776 , and join #oods to participate.
