We have an interest in this as well. We have hosted our enterprise SVN
repositories via Apcha and LDAP. With recent requests for per-directory
authorization we are left with figuring out a way to manage these
permissions. We do not want to require the users recreate the existing
LDAP groups in their authorization files. Are there any current plans to
support LDAP in the authorization file?
