ind no reason why these materials cannot be accepted.  Please submit a "sta=

=0AThe Foundation has no objection to the Project establishing a sub-projec=
t of the OpenLDAP Project, similar to the Java LDAP and JDBC-LDAP sub proje=
cts, to develop works based upon your contribution.  It is the Foundation u=
nderstanding that Project is also willing to establish such a sub-project, =
and extend commit privs to the key developers who produced the contributed =
work.<br>=0A<br>=0AIt is noted that the OpenLDAP Foundation, if it accepts =
the final contribution, would from time to time publish works derived (such=
 as the source repository itself, and possibly packaged source bundles) fro=
m your contribution as well as possibly the contributions of others.  The O=
penLDAP Foundation will license its copyright right interests (initially li=
kely quite limited) using the OpenLDAP Public License, and will encourage c=
ommunity members to license their contributions in a manner consistent with=
 our general contribution guidelines.  The OpenLDAP Public License is compa=
tible with the 'New BSD open source license' and similar in its basic terms=
.<br>=0A<br>=0AThe initial COPYRIGHT file (upon acceptance and initial publ=
ication by the OpenLDAP Foundation) would be based on the COPYRIGHT file cu=
rrently found in OpenLDAP Software distributions, excepting JoshuaTree Soft=
ware would be named as the contributor of the materials for which the publi=
shed work is derived from, and notice immediately following the Foundation'=
s notice would be that provided by JoshauTree covering the work as contribu=
tions.<br>=0A<br>=0AIt is noted that I recently attempted to re-download th=

We have created a new Identity and Access Management SDK, called Fortress, =
that<br>=0A&gt; uses Java and OpenLDAP to provide authentication, RBAC, ARB=
AC, password<br>=0A&gt; policies, auditing and more.<br>=0A&gt; <br>=0A&gt;=
 It has taken us 2.5 years of steady work to get it ready for this 1.0 rele=
ase. <br>=0A&gt; This SDK has approximately 50K lines of Java code of which=
 approximately 25K are<br>=0A&gt; dedicated to testing using JUnit automate=
d tests to ensure it works correctly. <br>=0A&gt; There are in excess of 10=
0 public APIs available for use.  There is also a Java<br>=0A&gt; EE contai=
ner plug-in that provides authentication and authorization services to<br>=
=0A&gt; Websphere, Tomcat and JBoss app servers in a declarative fashion.  =
<br>=0A&gt; <br>=0A&gt; This product has not been published and we would li=
ke to release it as one of<br>=0A&gt; the products under OpenLDAP family of=
 products.  The product will be released<br>=0A&gt; under New BSD open sour=
ce license (license information is contained in the<br>=0A&gt; source archi=
ves on ftp server).<br>=0A&gt; <br>=0A&gt; I have uploaded seven packages t=
o our FTP server that contain the source,<br>=0A&gt; documentation and othe=
r items for you to look at.<br>=0A&gt; <br>=0A&gt; host: <a href=3D"http://=

 SDK.<br>=0A&gt; <br>=0A&gt; this link, ./oamCore/trunk/dist/docs/api/index=
.html, contains package<br>=0A&gt; descriptions along with detailed documen=
tation describing the contents of the<br>=0A&gt; SDK.<br>=0A&gt; <br>=0A&gt=
; What we are requesting from the OpenLDAP foundation:<br>=0A&gt; <br>=0A&g=
t; 1. Source code repository to host the SDK and Realm packages.<br>=0A&gt;=
 2. Bug tracking.<br>=0A&gt; 3. Developer and User forums.<br>=0A&gt; 4. Wi=
ki (this is a nice to have)<br>=0A&gt; <br>=0A&gt; Our goal is to run the o=
pen source project with your organization and cultivate<br>=0A&gt; a health=
y developer and user community.  We have high hopes for this product<br>=0A=
&gt; (and OpenLDAP) and consider the 2 products together as an open source<=
br>=0A&gt; alternative for IAM products that will compete with the commerci=
al vendor<br>=0A&gt; offerings.  <br>=0A&gt; <br>=0A&gt; Once 1.0 is releas=
ed, we will begin working on 2.0 which will include UI's to<br>=0A&gt; cont=
rol Fortress and OpenLDAP along with a policy server to wrap the Fortress<b=
r>=0A&gt; Java APIs with HTTP/REST Web APIs to make it available to all pla=
tforms.<br>=0A&gt; <br>=0A&gt; Thanks in advance for your consideration.<br=
