Bad package description.  It tells me something I don't care about (namely
the acronym expansion of LDAP) and none of the things I do care about (why
would I want this package rather than some other directory server).

Out of curiousity, why?  I can't think of any reason to run FDS when we
already have OpenLDAP, having had the experience of dealing with FDS's
technological predecessor.  Is it just the multi-master replication that
people are interested in?

(Whatever the answer is, assuming there is some compelling feature not
found in OpenLDAP, it should go into the package description.)
