Redmine does support LDAP as a backend and adding a custom
authentication backend to Redmine is also trivial (just implement an
AuthSource - takes less than 40 lines of code for simple DB-based
What I could consider somewhat problematic with these custom auth
backends in both Review Board and Redmine is the "pull" approach that
is implemented by them: The user account data is only pulled from the
backend when an account is used for the first time, so you cannot add
somebody as a reviewer before he has signed on at least once.
