c=CH@o=EPFL contains the complete data from the internal phone/Email
directory of the Lausanne Polytechnic, but the access to all objects
representing real persons has been restricted to people within the
EPFL itself.  This was necessary because of an earlier policy decision
at this school (no-one should be published through X.500 directory
without being asked for consent).  I guess this is a common obstacle
to more general X.500 deployment.  Another one is probably that
communication paths between QUIPU hackers and administration people
have to be established.

Fine! I just finished collecting the JPEG gallery of our lab.
