Two small projects that could be completed in a short amount of time:
implement a DirSync module for OpenLDAP to replicate from M$AD, and
implement a passwordSync module for OpenLDAP with AD.
DirSync module: oh yes, that sounds interesting! :)
Yes, it would just be another Type for the syncrepl consumer.
passwordSync module: do you mean the password synchronization mechanism
Also an idea that sounds great...
Yes, exactly that. The Unix code that Microsoft provides is abominable. It
could be done a lot more cleanly as a slapd module/overlay.
Speaking of such things, maybe http://www.openldap.org/devel/todo.html
needs an update?
I suppose. But at this point there aren't a lot of burning issues, it's all
pretty much up to individual developer interest.
Of course I would rather not see time wasted on something like XMPP if someone
is actually interested in jumping in and learning; better to work on something
that will be useful to others as well.
And, although it's a bit late for this year, would such projects not
make good propositions for Google's summer of code?
Probably. Our last proposals to GSoC were ignored in 2009 so I didn't bother
to mention it for this year. If someone else wants to try for 2011, go ahead.
