FYI: the new "directory" element is now in the DNS zones for each <itad> zone.

The new zone should be distributed in the next half-hour or so. So far, only four entries, and none of them valid. Start coding! :-)

; new format dns entry

John -
OK, I've requested that "directory" be the record identifier for that URL, and hopefully it will be running shortly.

I like the search criteria for an automated tool. Is there any type of search syntax that can be used from a pre-existing platform like LDAP?

Here are some obvious search tools:

postal address
email address (full)

- regular expressions/wildcards?
- limits on returned queries?
- security model?

This would be an HTML directory, organized in whatever manner the ITAD
owner wants.

Let's add another URL to the administrators' pages, and call it

It would be a cgi, accepting either post or get, and would be able to
search by a standard set of fields. For example, if I put the following
url into my admin page as the directorysearch URL:

Then searches could be done as follows:

and so on. We just need to define a standard set of search keys.

The directory.<itad> page might have a window that
provides an interface to the directorysearch.<itad>
page (or any other search mechanism), but if the directorysearch URL
is provided, it would behave according to our standards.
