Sun would be interested in participating in the interoperability
We would have 3 servers to test against: Sun Directory Server, Sun
Directory Proxy Server and OpenDS.
Who else is participating ?
I've seen interest from Novell and Michael Stroeder so far.
I can bring the Isode M-Vault (server) and Sodium Sync (client). I
suspect having OpenLDAP there will not be a problem. Will check to
see if Apache DS can be there. Others are, of course, quite welcomed.

They might be a good start, but i suspect they would be kind of old
hat. That is, not tell us much new.
For instance, I would be particularly interested in testing
That is, testing such things as SASLprep (in clients) and LDAPprep
There are various other changes made in LDAPbis that might impact
interoperability and should be tested.
And then there are various extensions...
or should we define new test suites as part of this exercise?
I think a good strategy is for each participant to come armed with
their own test suite of things like to test across all (applicable)
players. I assume everyone runs their own suite against their own
software. What we want to do is run each of these suites against
the others' software.

Subject: Call for interop proposals
List-Id: general discussion of application-layer protocols
At the Apps area open meeting in Vancouver, Chris & I mentioned
the possibility of doing a day of interoperability events at the
next IETF meeting. This would replace a day of Apps area
meetings during the normal meeting hours and in the normal
meeting location. Ideally it would allow people to come to the
IETF for more than just "their" meeting (although we have always
hoped they can attend other WG meetings as well) and
participants may get more benefit and better justification for
If we're going to do this, we need proposals: what topic ( IDs,
RFCs, suites or functionality) will be tested. I don't think
interops will need a lot of management but volunteer
coordinators would be ideal. Proposals will need to be followed
quickly by some indications of who will participate. WG
scheduling is already open and we need to tell the Secretariat
immediately if they need to reserve a day for interops.
Proposals should probably be posted on some relevant subject
mailing list to quickly generate discussion among potential
participants -- not everybody reads Apps Discuss.
