Hi,
there is already an Alioth project registered for Fedora-DS:
http://alioth.debian.org/projects/pkg-fedora-ds/

I mailed with Noel some time ago and he told me that the build scripts
are very nasty and nobody made some real packaging progress so far.

If you feel like tackling it you should maybe create an alioth account
and contact Noel.

HTH

Hi,

you might want to check out the svn from alioth, because 1.1.1 is
already in a fairly working condition (most patches went upstream),
so 1.1.2 will be also soon ready. I could really need a helping hand
here, so feel free to ping me or the list ;)

ciao,
Michele

While the upstream project is now 389 Directory Server, and no longer
Fedora Directory Server, I would still like to see a package for it.  I
know some work was done towards this, but unfortunately it seemed to bog
down really quickly.  Upstream, I belive some work has been done to make
the Directory Server less specific in what libraries it requires, this
might make it easier to create a debian package for it.

Unfortunately, I do not really have time to help with this, which is why I
submitted a request for package rather than an intent to package.
