If no one else wants these I will volunteer for the following from your
- Maintain the OpenLDAP Administrators Guide (do you mean the successor
to the slapd one from umich?)
- Develop a OpenLDAP Developer's Guide
- Write test005-modrdn

There are several other areas I am interested in due to local needs and
would like to take ownership of if there are no objections.  They are:

- suffix aliasing (already in place)
- changelog (patches submitted, what's the status on getting these in?)
- allowing initial anon binding based on ip rules
- object based acls
- server side referrals

I would appreciate any info on these topics (pointers to standards,
existing code, etc)

I've only just downloaded the 1.1 alpha distrib.  I would not mind
working on some of the v3 stuff but have not seen or perhaps followed
the discussions/progress enough to know exactly what to help with

Pardon a possibly stupid question, I am pretty new to cvs: how do I find
out all the different tags that are available?  I tried using anoncvs to
get the latest 1.1alpha but could not determine what tag to use
