Instructions for obtaining edit access to the Grouper wiki are linked from the top of the main page, highlighted in red:

Please do not contact me directly to request access. We have a special address for that: <>. This ensures that requests are covered if I am not available. This is all explained in the access doc referenced above.

This is the contributions page FYI:

1. developed a new, simplified UI for end users built on Spring webflow

Great. Even better if you have some screenshots or a screen movie which shows it in action. :)

2. used the hooks in the API to synchronise data held in Grouper with
LDAP directories used in the University (Novell eDirectory). An open
ESB (Mule) and rules engine (Drools) is used to do this as a 2-way sync

Sounds very interesting. We have now three ways to do this (after 1.5 / 1.5.1 / 1.6) is released:

1. Hooks
2. Change log
3. ldappc ng

Maybe we should publish a wiki page with the pro's / con's of each approach with examples (including yours).

The code we've developed can all be made available as open source, and
very much like to do so if there is interest. From the point of view of
Grouper developers, what would be the best way to go about this? I plan
keep maintaining the code, but is there somewhere where should it live,
be linked from, so it would be of most benefit?

We should definitely link at lease from the contrib. page (can you request access from Steve Olshanky steveo AT internet2 DOT edu). Tom Barton probably has better information architecture ideas about where things should live. :)
