A team I'm working with are looking to do explore some designs using LDP 
(http://www.w3.org/TR/ldp/) - as part of this, we're looking to stand up an 
off-the-shelf LDP server for our tests.

We've looked at a few of the options mentioned at 
https://www.w3.org/wiki/LDP_Implementations, but so far the ones we've tried 
have been less than fully satisfactory:

- Apache Marmotta - project appears to be dead (not updated since 2014?)
- ldnode - didn't get running, possibly becauxe of complex node dependencies
- gold - this is what we're using for now, as it was easy enough to get running. 
  But it's prone to unexpected failures without any diagnostics (e.g. fails 
silently when loading Turtle data with comments; returns garbage data).  It is 
also a Solid container, there is ACL configuration that complicates the setup if 
not run in debug mode.

What we're looking for is an LDP server that:

1. supports Basic LDP containers (direct/indirect not needed)
2. is easy to install (on a Linux host server) (*)
3. is easy to configure (*)
4. is reasonably reliable and maintained

(*) these might amount to simply having reliable "getting started" documentation

Any suggestions?
