Has anyone done work to manage posix gidNumber within grouper and would you
care to share your work?

I believe it should be possible to create a global attribute keeping the next
gidNumber and then to assign a gidNumber attribute with the current global
gidNumber to a group and then increment the global.

This should be documented some place so others can leverage.

I also don’t understand how to specify which groups should pushed to LDAP
(and how to exclude subsets). If anyone has done this and has examples -
please share.

I am concerned the current PSPng implementation presumes 2 group objects in
LDAP, one for the normal group and a separate group for the Posix version.
This doesn’t seem right to me, we should be able to include posix attributes
within any group object. I have private email out to Bert these questions as

If I can get these problems resolved then I am halfway to eliminating the
need for the CMU GAP code.
