Believe it or not this is the first request I recall about this. We have a
grouperLoader which works from SQL but I can easily extend it to work with
ldap I believe. If you want to send me the details of what you need, more
info of the ldap structure, etc, I can make sure I satisfy the requirements.

If you mean using shib to protect the grouper UI, there is a wiki about it.
If you mean exposing Grouper data to be used as shib attributes, I think we
are in development for that

You will be able to configure the LDAP loader job via the UI, you configure
the ldappc with a config file once, and then when you create new groups they
go to ldap automatically...
