I was just wondering, since the class status is down right now for 2.0
head.., what the current state of the System.DirectoryServices namespace

I've had quite a bit of success working with some test programs and
OpenLdap, but the only thing I cannot do is write to the directory store.

DirectoryEntry.CommitChanges() runs and exits ok, but doesn't seem to
really do anything. Then next time I run it, or read the directory in GQ
the entry is still exactly the same.

Right now I'm using Mono-1.0 with Linux Mandrake 10.1 (actually Cooker,
I'm going to redo my Laptop with 10.1 PowerPack now that its out)

I don't see any listing for the Commit method in the class status
mentioned earlyer, and I'm actually using a slightly modified example from
the MSDN site. I just modified to support a specific entry and added
authentication to have write access (was getting a Novell.Ldap blah blah
error when it wasn't authenticating properly)
