    Dear All,
    I just started playing with wordpress MU.
    I have been actively working on Wordpress since long time and running more than 10 blogs in our blog-network. Since blog network is growing, I thought its good idea to go for WPMU.

    Now about our setup...
    We have a blog n/w say at
    All blogs in network have their own domain name but I am using Doncha's Domain Mapping plugin to tackle this issue.
    Next all blogs are community blog. Till now I was using "define('CUSTOM_USER_TABLE', 'wp_users')" option in wp-config.php of all blogs to share user tables.
    Now on WPMU I am looking for a similar solution.

    Whenever a user register on any WPMU blog, he must be assigned contributor status on all blogs available in that installation.

    Also if a tomorrow a new blog is created in network, it must have assigned all user on network automatically assigned to it.
