RE: Berkeley DB

That's a very interesting question. If I ship OpenLDAP with a product just so that customers, who do not have an LDAP server themselves, can install it easier from my distribution than having to get/build/install it themselves, am I in violation of the license?  Only OpenLDAP uses BerkeleyDB, and it is freely available, the rest of the fictional product does not.

Subject: Berkeley DB

I was wandering, did someone ever try to remove Berkeley DB  and use his own DB system? The thing is that if I want to use SLAPD in a commercial software, I got to pay Sleepycat for using Berkeley DB. I want to use my own API system in SLAPD, bypassing Berkeley DB. Does it seem possible or is it to much of a " dangerous surgical operation"?
