    So, any interest in modifying this plugin to account for AD security groups? Right now I think it relies on OU authentication, but we need to do group auth.

    right now you can set a base ou - but thats about it. I would like to add group auth, but i'm letting that idea stew because there are a number of things to deal with. Some users want group auth for everything, others what group auth for blog creation only, etc, etc

    Well, it's definitely something we need, as not all our users are in a single OU. So, when you're ready to work on it, let me know. I'd be happy to help.

    The other thing that I hacked into your plugin, but not in the best way possible, is the ability to send an explanatory message in place of the password in the notify new user function. Without it, the user doesn't get a notification at all. Unfortunately, the way I did it, the site admins end up getting duplicate notifications. So, I obviously haven't found the exact right place to do it. If I find it, I'll let you know.

    So here's a question. How do we convert local users to ldap users? Is there something in the database that needs to be updated? Thanks.

    each user has a usermeta value - ldap_login - this would need to be updated. someone submitted a patch for this just a couple days ago - i have not had time to look at it - but it is listed on the SF site.
