1)  I would introduce the product name (ApacheDS), in the 2nd paragraph:

"Our primary vision is to build an enterprise directory server platform 
(ApacheDS) ..."

2)  Spellcheck:
     a)  annouces --> announces
     b)  Fouindation --> Foundation

3)  SEDA is no longer in use anywhere, and even though this PR doesn't 
coincide with the 0.9 release, we should stop mentioning it.  Perhaps:

* Powered by MINA, a powerful framework for building Internet protocol

> Those services include LDAP itself, DNS, DHCP, SLP, UDDI, NTP, and

> Features of ApacheDS:
> * Designed as an LDAP and X.500 experimentation platform.
> * The server exposes all aspects of administration via a special system backend.
> * Both the backend subsystem and the frontend are separable and
> independently embeddable.
> * Provides a server side JNDI LDAP provider which directly interacts
> with the backend storage.
> * Powered by Staged Event Driven Architecture (SEDA) which can handle
> large amounts of concurrency.
> Coming soon:
> * Remote management via JMX.
> * Java-based triggers and stored procedures.
