"Taking its place next to Sun, Corel and Netscape, Novell plans to open the source code to select portions of its cash cow, Novell Directory Services, sources said."

"The move comes on the heels of Novell's recent decisions to publish open source licenses for its digital wallet technology called DigitalMe, NDS for Linux client and the management interface to its Internet Caching System (ICS)."

"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. The move could lead to a further proliferation of directory-enabled software. Novell officials would not comment."
