ldap-abook project

    Greetings.  A few months ago, I put together a perl cgi frontend to a LDAP server in order to make my household's address book available via LDAP, and I have recently created the ldap-abook project to make this code available to others.  Clearly there is some significant overlap between ldap-abook and rolodap, and I am very interested in seeing what rolodap looks like as it takes shape.  In the meantime, I offer ldap-abook as something to look at, use, appreciate, critisize, steal from, or ignore.  Perhaps someday the two projects can be merged...

    FYI:  I have put a link on the ldap-abook home page (http://ldap-abook.sourceforge.net) pointing to the rolodap home page because those interested in one may also be interested in the other.

      This looks very interesting and I am sorry we were not more aware of it when we started.

      Could we talk you into contributing to Rolodap?  Abook would provide a great start.

        I'd be happy to help where I can, provided that you have no problem with the possibility of some ideas from rolodap finding their way into ldap-abook.

      I saw this about a year ago, and asked the author if he would open source it.  It is a simple but nice looking ldap contacts application.


      It might provide good code to work from.  Thanks to the author
