Oracle's Open Source Identity Reborn At ForgeRock

gdiff Blowing Smoke? (76 comments)

Far be it for anyone to question you, Mr Sr. Director, but one of the advantages of this open source stuff is that people can fact-check you pretty easily. So I did.

The OpenDS change log is at http://java.net/projects/opends/sources/svn/history?page=1&theme=java.net and while there have indeed been a bunch of updates made, they all seemed to dry up about two months ago (apart from a lone update made this week).

The OpenDJ change log is at http://sources.forgerock.org/changelog/opendj/ and it seems to me that it is being actively maintained at the moment.

So while I am sure your words read precisely are factually correct (work has happened since last February), they don't seem to me to recognize the actual situation (nothing much has happened this year). To my eyes, it looks like the Forgerock people are increasing their engagement with the code, while your people have given up. And the only real FUD I can find doing searches is you saying the OpenDJ project is a bad thing because, well, forks are always bad, right. Unless I've found the wrong OpenDS and OpenDJ logs - I've never looked at either before so I may have it all wrong I suppose.

So. This "next level" you speak about. Is it a level with locked doors that none of us can get into to fact-check you?
