when necessary. (How hard would it be to authenticated against
zope.org via ldap ?)
The LDAP server is on the private network inside the zope.org "cluster"
and not reachable by the outside world, so as of right now that's not
If we continue down the path of microsites the issue of shared
authentication will become more and more urgent.
If LDAP is still an option (I know quite a few people don't like it
because they perceive it as complicated or hard to wrap ones brain
around) the first step would be to set up a central LDAP server instance
that can be reached over the internet by the different microsites. This
can be bootstrapped with a data export from the old zope.org server, not
a big issue. There might be an issue with latency if the geographically
widely dispersed microsites don't have excellent network connectivity
towards that central LDAP server, which in turn can be solved by LDAP
slaves closer to the microsite host.
I don't like using ldap unless there is a good reason to do so,
but it's use here certainly seems justified -- especially if
someone with the requisite expertise is involved. :)
