X.500 Advanced Usages Query

The Directory Information Services Infrastructure (DISI) of the Internet 
Engineering Task Force (IETF) is looking for descriptions of the ways you 
use (or plan to use) X.500 in your organization.

These descriptions will be collated into an 'Advanced Usages' document 
which will eventually be published as an Internet RFC and will be 
available from many locations around the world! If you're using X.500 to 
keep track of what's in your fridge, let us know! If you're using it to 
provide directory services to  your campus, let us know!  We'll accept 
(and publish) almost anything, but are particularly interested in (you 
guessed it) Advanced Usages!  Even if your current projects using X.500 
aren't finished yet, let us know what you're trying to do.

Once we get a draft of our RFC together, we will send it back to you to 
review before we publish (if your description ends up in the RFC).

If you know someone who would be able to contribute, please pass this
message on.
