"Novell, taking its place next to other daredevils like Sun, Corel, and Netscape, plans to open up the sourcecode to select portions of its cash cow -- NetWare Directory Services, sources said."

"The Provo, Utah company, which recently announced it would publish its own open-source license for its DigitalMe, NDS for Linux client, and the management interface to its Internet Caching System (ICS), is now opening up the source code for select portions of one of its crown jewels, NetWare Directory Services (NDS), said several sources at Comdex."

"The model will not be similar to Sun's community licensing model, but it will make it easier for ISVs to develop to NDS on certain platforms, the sources said."
