I was confused too :)
Now I have working instalation of LoginManager-0-8-7a1. It retrieves
users' data from ZODB, but it may be helpfull to understand how to
implement any other source, i.e. MySQL.
Probably I did it very dirty way, but it works ;)
First, I created my own UserSource class, adding it to source file
lib/python/Products/LoginManager/UserSources.py. Here comes the diff:
< from Products.ZPatterns.PlugIns import defaultConstructors
> from Products.ZPatterns.PlugIns import defaultConstructors, PlugIn

Method retrieveItem have to return user object with given name. I have
users inside folder Uzytkownicy beside acl_users.
Next thing to do is to create class representing users. It must have
LoginManager:LoginUser as a base class. So I made such ZClass. This class
has methods authenticateUser, domainsForUser, rolesForUser, which do real
work. (Users in folder Uzytkownicy are instances of that ZClass.)
This class contains some properties of user - login (it's just object's
id), name, other data. (Currently I store passwords externally, because I
need them to do POP3 authentication.)
Then, on management tab "User Sources" of your LoginManager instance, add
instance of your UserSource class. Check also for proper settings on
