Hi there,

we're currently setting up a Development install of Grouper (1.5.0), with a
view to using it with a new Identity Management system we are in the process
of developing.

One requirement we have is to assign a Unix GID to created groups.

I had spotted the following archive message regarding this, which outlines a
few options, and seems to recommend hooks as being the best way to implement
this (

Now that 1.5 has introduced the new attribute framework, I'm wondering
whether it would be easier to add a hook which creates the read only GID as
an attribute assigned directly to the group, rather than creating a custom
group type and attribute.

Would hooks and an attribute assigned to the group be the best way of doing
this, or are there any other options?

Thanks in advance!
