While I can't comment on the final release schedule for FreeIPA v2, I
Thanks for that link. I see:
I don't see how something as fundamental as a directory server can be mostly finalized (feature freeze, and bug fix only state) in a few weeks when the developers themselves say "we reset our FreeIPA DS from scratch every day", suggesting that no one (?) has tested it in an operational state with real users and systems for an extended period (at least days, but really for weeks or more). If you think one frustrated group (us) right now is annoying, just wait to see what happens if FreeIPA v2.0 *does* go out with Fedora 15 in a few months and lots of people eagerly install it only to discover in the following months that it wasn't ready or that they can't upgrade/migrate their DS contents.
As a postscript, a few weeks ago FreeIPA had 20% left to complete before v2.0 was ready. Even if we are kind and estimate that this last 20% will take only 20% of the effort (rather than 80% which we're all familiar with is much more common by the 80/20 rule) it would suggest that about 2 months are required to complete it. Does it suggest that everything that has ever been done to produce FreeIPA v2.0 has been done in the past 10 months (starting March 2010)? Or has the team working on it grown substantially over the past year?
