I've already thought for some time about my role as the maintainer of 
the PowerDNS LDAP (and OpenDBX) backend. Due to my lack of time, I 
wasn't able in the last year to care much about the backends I 
originally wrote. Unfortunately, this situation won't get better in the 
future as I'm currently leading the development of a new shop system for 
my company, which is a very fascinating and time consuming project. My 
lack of knowledge regarding DNSSEC is another reason why I don't see a 
chance for me to add support for this to both backends.

It would be great if someone else with much more knowledge and time 
would be able to add support for DNSSEC to both backends. Being a 
confident advocate of open source software, I know my work regarding the 
backends won't be in vain and it will survive even if I drop out.

Best wishes to all users and developers of the great PowerDNS project
