When is the IETF meeting? There's a meeting of the Z39-50 implementors 
workgroup in Washington starting 

March 4th.   Doncha love mixing and matching protocol suites!


Z39-50 and X.500 seem to have an awful lot of overlap- in theory, it should be 
use Z39-50 to provide almost of the functionality of  X.500  for directory 
services ( Z39-50  lacks an update facility).  Maybe we can add some Update 
PDUs to Version 3 of the Z39-50 draft, and have X.500  formally declared 
obsolete :-]
