We have the last membership changed in the DB, but we don't expose over WS, I
supposed we could in a later version.

If you have 2.0, there is a rule for email notifications:

You could need a rule for add, and a rule for remove. Note you can have this
work for all groups in a folder with one rule.

Also, (applies to pre-2.0), you could use the change log to send an event
somewhere (e.g. xmpp or ws), or send them email directly from the change log
consumer. This would be very easy to setup and I could send you a code
example if you need it. Just send me the exact requirements.

Generally the architecture of the change log allows us to avoid polling via
ws (has the membership changed? Has the membership changed? Has the
memberships changed? Etc) which is why it might not be ideal to add to the WS
api :)

Subject: [grouper-users] Detecting membership changes

Is there a web service for detecting whether members have been added
or removed from a group? I'm contemplating an application that sends
us email whenever someone is added or removed from a group. Is the
audit functionality the best way to achieve this? I didn't see a web
service for it, though. Or shall we just do a periodic dump of the
entire membership and diff for changes?
