We understand parts of the AD replication protocols, and how to be in a
position to fully participate in the future.  Microsoft has recently
announced a 'read only server' for branch offices, and this is
attractive as a place to start in this process.

The development code is already available, but we have not set any firm
dates for alpha or beta releases.  I hope to release a technology
preview sometime in the next couple of weeks.
