I think it would be a shame for us to end up with two lots of GNOME user
data (one in LDAP, one in Plone), so I don't think 1 is the best way to
go. IMHO, having to maintain two accounts for GNOME-related stuff will
end up confusing people.

If the Plone server making requests is to be hosted outside of the remit
of the GNOME sysadmin team, as it is now, I'm not so sure I feel
comfortable with giving it that much access to our LDAP service or data.

If the source code for this was checked into GNOME CVS (well,
subversion), hosted on a GNOME server, where only GNOME-approved hackers
were able to make changes to the site source and only GNOME-approved
sysadmins have access to the databases and web servers, I'd feel a lot
more comfortable about it all. Or am I just being too paranoid?

I guess we also need to set up a 'test' LDAP server with a copy of the
live data so we can develop and test this safely.

Just my initial thoughts. (CCing gnome-infrastructure, for info).
