[ Thanks to Aaron Turner for this announcement. ]

The first of hopefully many semi-regular news briefs regarding the OODS Project has been published on the OODS web site.

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.
