I have added a link to <> - Comparing the uPortal Groups Service and Grouper.

I'm very glad that we're connecting and I also look forward to working
with you guys to see what grouper might offer for you, and vice versa to
learn where grouper may need to grow.

Looking over the GAP wiki, it may be that both grouper and signet, the
privilege management system being developed by I2, should be examined to
see where and how they each might integrate with the Spinning off GAP
project. Signet's at <>, and Lynn
McRae (being CCd) is the project lead.

Should we try to find some synchronous communication time to quickly and
collectively get up to speed on these technologies and projects (ie, conf
call or f2f somewhere)? I'll also post some comments to the GAP/Grouper
wiki in the next couple of days.

Hi Mark (and everyone else)...

Dan Ellentuck of Columbia and I are trying to get up to speed on
Grouper in order to see where the work Dan's doing for uPortal and
Grouper intersect to see how we can make sure that uPortal conforms to
some meaningful standards. JA-SIG had a conference early last week,
and in a Developer meeting one of the topics was groups and
permissions. One of the tasks currently underway is to separate out
the uPortal Groups and Permissions modules into a standalone

So, any input that anyone might have on how Grouper could be used to
this end would be very welcome. I'm sure we'll have some discussion
topics to bring up and Dan and I learn more about the good work you all
have done so far...

We're looking forward to it! Anything you might want to add to our
Wiki page would be great, too.

I noticed this morning that the Grouper project is mentioned on the
JASIG wiki (home of uPortal and CAS authentication). Anybody with a
serious interest in uPortal is likely to browse this wiki fairly

If anybody would care to make any improvements to the wiki page then
I believe anybody can register to use the wiki and do so.
