Re: Setup Directory Server

From what I understand, you can start your own dir server if you email
the other dir servers and ask them to trust you. Unless you show
drastically different results there's no reason for them not to.

Either I missed the irony in your post, or you have got something
seriously wrong. Of course, you cannot simply start a sixth
authoritative directory service by yourself that will be trusted by all
clients. And if you could, I wouldn't call that decentralization of
trust, but a serious security leak.

But it's a joke, right? (In this case I would like to promote the use of
smileys, so that the silly non-native speakers can understand the real
meaning, too.) :)
