This is mainly directed at cgmonroe, but any insight might be helpful.
I was looking at the stats at https://drupal.org/project/usage/ldap_integration
Seems like a fair amount of use of dev version (to indicate) and a great amount of beta2s. There is a tendency for new implementers to use the beta rather than dev; for good reason. Because of all the patches since august, should we release a beta3? Do any of the patches require an update hook? I don't see any that do in the recent past, but haven't looked to closely.
I'm not using the 6 version, just trying to help out maintaining it. Perhaps a release candidate is more appropriate, but I think the mass sych/provisioning/paging issues would need to be fixed first.
There are also some no brainer patches needing review (https://drupal.org/project/issues/ldap_integration?text=&status=8&priori...) that maybe could be committed beforehand?
