If only Open Group would relax the license for their DCE/DFS source :)

Actually I have a local CVS of the source with a lot fo linux support from
the FreeDCE project. It's really too bad it can't be worked on in a more
open fashion. Partly the reason that I haven't messed with it in awhile. I
might revisit the CDS->LDAP project. I've mainly been trying to take most
of what the Open Group has and replace it with freely available software.
Using OpenLDAP for that would be pretty nice.
