Could anyone point to any additonal resources for LDAP Authentication. The 
XWiki doc 
http://platform.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/AdminGuide/Authentication  does 
not deal in complete detail on all the possible attributes that can be 
configured in xwiki.cfg.  I have configured LDAP authentication for XWik 
but have Some questions that I could not find answers to from the docs.

1) How can the LDAP configuration be debugged for any issues.    I 
followed the log4j settings from 
http://platform.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/AdminGuide/Logging .  There is no 
LDAP related logging in the xwiki log.    The xwiki log shows that the 
user was Authenticatied with Xwiki.FormAuthenticator  e.g this is the 
message in the log " [P1-19] INFO  xwiki.MyFormAuthenticator       - User 
xwiki:XWiki.testuser5 has been logged-in"  (not sure if this would 
internally call the LDAP class).  However, since only the ldap users are 
being authenticated,  I think the .XWikiLDAPAuthServiceImpl is being used. 
I found on the web that 
com.xpn.xwiki.user.impl.LDAP=debug  log seeting could be used for setting 
the LDAP  loglevel to debug.  However, this setting still does not log 
anything LDAP.    Is this a valid setting for XWikiLDAPAuthServiceImpl? 
How can I conclusively say the authentication is done through LDAP?

2)Is it possible to replicate the groups in LDAP to groups in XWIKI and 
replicate the corresponding  groupmemberships for a user during login so 
that the authorization is done through XWiki based on the user's group 
association in LDAP?
