I haven't looked at this stuff, but yes, I think a standard LDAP module would be quite useful. It's a well enough established protocol, and it would be good to be able to count on it "being there".
My WebDAV module implements an established protocol (an RFC tends to do that :-), but the API within the module is still in flux (IMO).
Is the LDAP module's API pretty solid? Is it changing?
It is closing in on version 2.0 -- not sure how much it still changes. I just thought I'd query here before asking Daniel about his thoughts on including the module in the core (wouldn't make much sense if there was no interest).
And is this module a C extension, or a pure Python implementation?
It's a Python module which uses a C wrapper to interface to OpenLDAP, which is a portable C lib dealing with all aspects of LDAP. There are at least two other projects built on top of python-ldap (see Parnassus for infos). I just thought I'd mention it here, because LDAP is certainly a widely used protocol in the corporate world and many decision makers have this on their list of buzz words. -- Marc-Andre Lemburg ______________________________________________________________________ Business: http://www.lemburg.com/ Python Pages: http://www.lemburg.com/python/
