I'm the POC in Community Architecture for Fedora Directory Server,
FreeIPA, and Dogtag.  It would be really cool to work more directly
with them on the layered products stuff.  They share a common clued
product manager (Kevin Unthank).  They have a strong interest in
working with us on community development.
