Hi Louise-Amélie,

I think it's possible that some of these were answered in person at the
community conference, but for a permanent record (and in case we
didn't actually answer them) here they are:

You can automatically register new users an Galaxy by using the LDAP
authentication method described in the Apache Proxy documentation on the
wiki.

Groups are another story, currently there is no way to synchronize
Galaxy groups with LDAP groups, although if the API were updated to
allow for group creation and management, that would probably be the way
to do it.

Meaning, you delete the user in LDAP, can that cause the user to be
deleted in Galaxy?  Not currently.  Probably also a good candidate for
API functionality, not currently implemented.

Only for "anonymous" datasets, all datasets "owned" by a real user are
kept until marked deleted by the user.

I believe a later email included a quick patch for this, but I'm also
working on adding this into the committed code base.
