What would be the advantages / disadvantages of sharing users via
plone.org uses LDAP. The advantage is that you can use the same
account across multiple web properties. For example on plone.org you
can use the same account to update content, use the Trac issue
tracker, or make commits to SVN. It's really nice to be able to
change your password in just one place :)
Since gnome.org has a lot of microsites, being able to participate
via comments, etc. across all these sites would is quite nice.
Another alternative to LDAP might be OpenID:
The primary disadvantage to LDAP is that it can take a decent amount
of sysadmin time and knowledge to properly set-up and maintain LDAP.
Another advantage/disadvantage is that it can centralize
authentication/authorization privileges into one place. This can be
advantage to more easily determine who can do what, but a
disadvantage if you've got too few people with too much control or
the opposite of too many people with too much control who are
inadvertently handing out privileges that did not expect.

plone.org stats are here:
plone.org does about 1/10th the traffic of a peak wgo month, although
it is serving up a lot of content from one system (over 5,000 content
items). plone.org is running of one box, it currently runs
subversion, Trac and Plone:
