The repoze.who LDAP plugin will be an official plugin

Some weeks ago I was invited to make repoze.who.plugins.ldap an official repoze.who plugin, which means that:

  • The license will change. It will use Repoze’s.
  • The development tools will be migrated from Launchpad (bug tracker, repository, etc).
  • The LDAP plugin’s documentation will be included into repoze.who’s.
  • It will be maintained by Repoze commiters, and I’m one of them.

I’ve not started the migration, but I hope to start in a few days.

    The resources I’ve identified seem to indicate that repoze.who is still GPL3 and that it is not yet an official plugin. Are those sources correct?

    I’ve noticed this article is more than a year old. If you could provide links to documentation regarding repoze.who.plugins.ldap or confirm its inclusion and license change, that’d be nice. : )

    Hi, Jeff.

    Please check this message:

    In the mean time, please feel free to use that plugin under the terms of the Repoze License:

    Hi Gustavo,

    I found your demo and plugin for LDAP with repoze. I’ve downloaded the demo and am running.

    I can easily get to http://localhost:8080/, but when I go to http://localhost:8080/about, I get an WebError Traceback.

    ⇝ HTTPUnauthorized: 401 Unauthorized This server could not verify that you are authorized to access the document you requested. Either you supplied the wrong credentials (e.g., bad password), or your browser does not understand how to supply the credentials required.

    Any tips?

    Hola Gustavo,

    I have developed an application with TG2. And now I need users to
    authenticate with PAM. How I can do? I have been testing “repoze” with
    SQLAlchemy and I like it but use it with PAM. Any ideas?

    @raulna: I don’t know about any repoze.who PAM plugin, sorry. There may be one, though.
