The Netscape Directory Server and OpenLDAP both had their origins in the LDAP/DS 
developed at the University of Michigan. Sun bought Netscape's DS when AOL bought out 
Netscape, and sold it as the Sun One DS.  Subsequently, Sun sold it to Red Hat, which 
released it as Fedora Directory Server.  So, FDS is the descendant of Sun's DS.
