The more the merrier

Jim Yang had an itch. He was designing an identity project for a large Texas grocery chain and realized it could significantly benefit from a virtual directory. But there was no money in the project to license a commercial virtual directory and there was no free/open source directory available. So he rolled his own. Penrose, the open source virtual directory, has now been released in version 1.0.

It's not as polished as those from Radiant Logic, MaXware, Oracle or SymLabs, but the price is certainly right and it should allow someone to at least model a project and demonstrate its eventual solution. With a little help from the user community it could even be able to hold its own as part of the open source identity suite.
