Has anyone tried integrating LDAP server (specifically Novell eDirectory) with CVS for user authentication and group based authorization?  If so, please send me the instructions on installing and configuring CVS to authenticate users against the LDAP directory and authorize access based the users group membership.

    Hey vicky I haven't tried it yet, but I was looking at having my linux server authenticate to our Windows domain today.  Are you the Linux admin?  If you can have the user accounts authenticate with LDAP, the CVS part is trivial (just making sure those users are part of the CVS group).  My problem is figuring out how to get Linux and Windows domain to work together.

    If I get it done, I'll update you.
