This idea is worth pursuing. If it does what its developers have in mind, 
OpenConnector would provide a tool that could be used with a many open source 
groupware server projects. 

The only reservation I have is that the project is still young and the 
community is small. The posts to the development mailing list are infrequent, 
and long periods of silence are common. But with additional help and some 
publicity, perhaps that could change. 

That said, working with a groupware project that already has a proven Outlook 
connector (even if the connector is still proprietary) would be prudent. As 
OpenConnector develops, we could gradually test and contribute to it, elevate 
its visibility, and eventually make it the reference connector. 

BTW, another consideration would be that the eventual "winner" of the 
groupware beauty pagent must integrate well with the OpenLDAP tools that are 
being enhanced and developed concurrently within the Ubuntu Server Team. We 
don't want to create yet another authentication database silo.
