Open source directory

I was way behind on my feeds, so this may be stale news of the "Germans bomb Pearl Harbor" variety, but Red Hat has acquired Netscape Directory Server and is opening it up. Neil McAllister says:
The difference is that none of the competing products are open source -- not even Novell's. Red Hat has said it will release its directory source code under the GPL (General Public License). In addition, it will sponsor a Fedora Directory project designed to spur community-driven development of the product in much the same way the Fedora Linux project acts as a technology incubator for Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
This sounds very promising. It is quite interesting to watch open source software climb up the stack.
