I'm seeing a problem with our provisioning where an adhoc group whose
membership consists of other groups isn't getting the indirect members
added. In LDAP it looks like:

dn: cn=penguin,ou=magic,ou=adhoc,ou=grouper2,dc=authorise-test,dc=ed,dc=ac,d
objectClass: groupOfNames
objectClass: posixGroup
objectClass: top
cn: penguin
gidNumber: 4188011206
member: cn=D355,ou=D355,ou=P5C,ou=ISG3,ou=ISG,ou=UOE,ou=org,ou=grouper2,dc=a
member: cn=D783,ou=D783,ou=P5C,ou=ISG3,ou=ISG,ou=UOE,ou=org,ou=grouper2,dc=a
member: cn=D890,ou=D890,ou=P5C,ou=ISG3,ou=ISG,ou=UOE,ou=org,ou=grouper2,dc=a
member: cn=P5C,ou=P5C,ou=ISG3,ou=ISG,ou=UOE,ou=org,ou=grouper2,dc=authorise-
member: uid=user1,ou=people,ou=central,dc=authorise-test,dc=ed,dc=ac,dc=u
member: uid=user2,ou=people,ou=central,dc=authorise-test,dc=ed,dc=ac,dc=uk
member: uid=user3,ou=people,ou=central,dc=authorise-test,dc=ed,dc=ac,dc=uk
member: uid=user4,ou=people,ou=central,dc=authorise-test,dc=ed,dc=ac,dc=uk
member: uid=user5,ou=people,ou=central,dc=authorise-test,dc=ed,dc=ac,dc=uk
member: uid=user6,ou=people,ou=central,dc=authorise-test,dc=ed,dc=ac,dc=u

Subsequently running a sync of the group added a few more users
but it's still a small subset of what should be there.

Trawling through the documentation I can see mentions made to
"flattened" and "direct only" memberships in the training videos but I
can't see it mentioned in any of the PSP configuration documents or in
the psp-example configs. How can I ensure that Grouper expands indirect
memberships for all groups?
