Hu-oh !!!

Men, we are all good guys, and are all OSS passionates !

Let's not going too far : words something hurts, and sentence are 
sometime misunderstood.

I think Quanah has a good point on indices, and we might have to get 
this wise advice somewhere like JIRA to keep a track of this improvments 
we may want to implement soon.

I know that Alex spent a *lot* of time those last three days debugging 
Apache DS performance issues we have, and he might well have been under 
huge pressure, and sometime, well, on this condition, people can 
overreact. I'm sure that Alex wasn't meaning what he wrote, but maybe he 
*felt* hurt by the way some sentences where stated. Sometime, some IMO, 
or IMHO are usefull, IMHO :)

Ok, men, no arm. Keep the good work done on OpenLdap and ApacheDS, and 
let's work together to improve both products. Competition is about that 
: improve and adapt. It's not like Chess, but much more like go : the 
territory is big enough for many players :)

Peace, as say Cameron Purdy :)
