The CentOS project is pleased to announce the first public release of
the CentOS Directory Server (CDS).

The CentOS Directory Server is a rebuild of the Red Hat Directory
server. It is LDAP server developed in the Fedora project and has a
long history. It started as the Netscape Directory Server but it got
purchased by Red Hat and they released it as free software.

CDS will be available in the CentOS Extras repository for CentOS 5 and
requires at least CentOS 5.3 because it requires the OpenJDK packages
that are new since 5.3. There are currently no plans to build CDS for
CentOS 4.

More information on how to install CDS and where to find documentation
is available at http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/DirectoryServerSetup.

Feedback about CDS can be given in all the regular channels available
(Forums, Mailing lists, IRC, etc.).

We hope that you will enjoy CDS and we would to thank all the people
that helped in testing to make this release possible.
