I had a chat with David Sugar (I believe he is a staff member from
Canonical). He suggests us to form a dedicated team to set up and
maintain the 389 directory server.
I have just done that and now we have got a new team called "Ubuntu 389
Directory Server Team"
I have added:
Timothy Pearson (the Ubuntu packager)
David Sugar (Canonical staff(?), also a REVU reviewer)
Michele Baldessari (Debian 389 maintainer)
to this team.
Also this team now has a centralized ppa. So it would be nice if we can
port Timothy's ppa to the team ppa, with the correct name changes etc. At
the same time, Michele can make sure that this ppa compiles in the Debian
testing suite and get 389 accepted in Debian as well. In this way, the
team ppa will centralize the development of both Ubuntu and Debian port at
I have just applied for an email list for this team and it is waiting for
approval. David, would you be able to approve the team email list?
P.S. Apart from the package name changes, we should transfer the
"maintainer" of the packages from Timothy Pearson to "Ubuntu 389 Directory
Server Team" so that this project is now managed by the whole team.
