Using LDAP Groups in Subversion's Authorization File

Hi All,
    Over the past few years, many have experienced the benefits of
using LDAP for Subversion's authentication. Unfortunately, some are
"let down" when they start wanting to utilize their group definitions
in their directory system within Subversion's authorization (authz)
infrastructure. With no native way for Subversion to utilize group
definitions outside of the authz file, people are left manually
synchronizing or defining their group models within the authz file.
Well, this doesn't have to be the problem anymore. I have written a
simple little Python script that can be automated through your task
scheduler of choice that will do this for you. For more details on
how the script works and where to get the script, feel free to
checkout the documentation here:


Feel free to reach out to me with any questions, suggestions,
enhancement requests, etc.

Take care,
Jeremy Whitlock
