Ah, okay, I thought that develop branch was used for v1.x and that v2
development was happening somewhere else. I recall that there was some branch
which had re-written database layer to enable others to write LDAP & other
database backends for OpenDNSSEC. Was it merged?

(I think it was in dbx branch on github.com/jelu/opendnssec.git .)
