A general LDAP list already exists: ldap@umich.edu. Unfortunately it is set up strangely, so you receive half a dozen vacation messages or even bounce messages (for messages that do reach the list) for each message you send. Maybe OpenLDAP could take over that list, like they took over the rest of Umich LDAP?

Absolutely. Any of those things would be progress.

Or maybe it's about time to create a newsgroup comp.infosystems.ldap or something?

Newsgroups aren't nearly as useful as mailing lists generally. Google groups helps, but its still not nearly as conducive to technical conversations as a well-run mailing list.


There are two ways of constructing a software design. One way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies. And the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies.
