[pmwiki-users] LDAP and Group Authentication

I am interested in the current state of PmWiki authentication.


Here is what I would like to be able to do:


1)      Use LDAP for user authentication

2)      Once authenticated, have access to any LDAP groups that the
individual is in

3)      Utilize the Read/Edit/Upload/Etc. attributes based on either the
authenticated LDAP user or any selected LDAP groups to

a.       Allow access to ALL pages in a WikiGroup

b.      Allow access to ANY pages on the Wiki.


Or, to put it differently, I would like to be able to say that, given
the following LDAP groups: Faculty, Student, Alumni, I could make it
such that only Faculty could read pages in a certain WikiGroup, and only
Faculty and Staff could read pages in a different WikiGroup, and only
authenticated user can read pages in a different WikiGroup, and maybe 3
different users could read a particular WikiPage.


I wrote a module (ExternAuth) that makes this work for me now, but it
isn't necessarily compatible with what everyone else is doing, nor
likely to be supported by the ongoing development of PmWiki, and I was
wondering if things have progressed to where what I need is now possible
using UserAuth1/2/x or anything else ...
