Brown's code is not available yet, although we do have permission now to distribute it. I'll be glad to answer questions to help you determine if it would be useful to you. Basically, it works by using a Grouper change log consumer, an ActiveMQ message queue, and a queue listener that updates Google. The change log consumer checks a group attribute to see if a changed group is enabled for Google, or if its enabled state changed. If so, the consumer puts messages on the queue to create or delete a Google group, or to add or remove members. The queue listener processes those messages, and contains the logic for updating Google.

I looked in the archives regarding Grouper and managing Google Groups. I see
Washington and Brown have written code to do this. Brown appears to be in a
position to make their code available - but I don't see anything saying it
was done.

I'd like to first understand the state of the code from Brown and Washington
- is your code available some place?

Secondly, googledirsync creates groups from ldap. Except, these groups are
with a default permission of anyone in the group and in the domain can send
email to the group. I'd like to get control over who can send email to the
group and default to nobody. Is this possible and have Brown/Washington or
anyone else done this?

Many thanks!
