[p2pu-dev] quick question: how many of you have used LDAP before? (opinions about how to migrate users from the drupal site to lernanta)

Adding a third option:

1) Moving existing Drupal user accounts into LDAP. If the users are in
LDAP it will be possible to authenticate using
http://packages.python.org/django-auth-ldap/ for Lernanta and
http://drupal.org/project/ldap_integration for the drupal site.

2) Use a custom django authentication backend in Lernanta (to
authenticate against the drupal site database) during the first steps
of the migration, and then move all the users from one database to the
other when we stop to use the drupal site.

3) Use Drupal as an OpenID Server. Drupal sites themselves can act as
OpenID servers, using the openid_server module, but only drupal 4.7
has support for this right now (needs to be ported to 5 and 6).
