Good morning once again Andrew.

Our document development folks (for [MS-ADTS], [MS-ADSC] & [MS-ADA(1,2,3)]) are currently working on ldif dumps for Windows 2000 and beyond; these, of course will omit domain specific information and replication metadata.

We will provide these as soon as possible, along with licensing information, of course. I have forwarded your comments to those involved in that.

Honestly, this really isn't very useful.  I can search against an AD server as well as you can, as can the users who have been bugging me to include into Samba the results of their own searches. 

What we are asking for is this kind of output, but under a the previously agreed licence, with the output defined as 'schema' (ie, falling clearly under the inclusion exception).  

I think what we need is to get a procedure in place whereby we can get this kind of thing released under a licence that works for both the PFIF and Microsoft.  In particular it needs single licence, preferably the one we have on the schema.  In particular it really does need not to be unique per release - each new text has to be cleared by multiple Linux vendors. 

I'm sure we can work something out.
