No, it should be included in Fedora DS.  I found it on the Fedora DS
site years ago.

It's more that you need to be running 'make test' with the FDS backend
regularly, and working to improve the automation of the solution.

If you take it on, then of course I'll try to give you a heads-up when I
need you to do work.   

This current effort aside (because I think it is strategic to remove the
provision-backend script and the questions I get because this is not
automated), I'm hoping to leave the LDAP backend maintenance to others.
