This really seems more apprioate for rt-users, and not rt-devel.

RT really needs it's own user database, but it's not too hard to set
something up to generate RT's user database from an ldap one. There's
even an example script in contrib
(http://www.fsck.com/pub/rt/contrib/2.0/LDAPsyncSCA.pl.gz) that should
be a reasonable starting point.
