We're trying to use the change log to implement near-realtime group provisioning, and as part of that, using group types and attributes to control provisioning. We get change log entries when a type is added or removed from a group. However, as far as I can tell, no change log entries are generated for changes to group attributes.

The use case for this is that we use the group type "GoogleGroup" to specify that a group should be provisioned to Google Groups. We want to allow the group name in Google to be different than the Grouper group name. We planned to do that by having a "googleName" attribute associated with the "GoogleGroup" type. The attribute would contain the group name to use for Google. However, that won't work if we don't get change log entries for group attribute additions, changes, and deletions.

If this doesn't work with the change log now, would it be feasible to add? Any other ideas for a solution? We have the requirement that it must be possible to use the Grouper UI to manage the name we use for the Google group.
