Hi All,

I'm a new Jifty user, long time Mason developer (see Netdisco).    This 
thing is cool!!!

I am building a project and want to use our LDAP server to 
authenticate.  There seems to be a lot of different plugins, and I'm not 
sure which one to use.

1. AuthLDAPLogin
2. AuthLDAPOnly
3. AuthzLDAP
4. Authentication::Ldap

My requirements for the plugin are
1. LDAP server is read-only, just used to get some user information and 
to authenticate
2. Have a local User module that stores application-specific fields

And a nice to have is
1. Auto add users to the local table as they login using LDAP, even if 
they did not exist in the local table before.  In other words all users 
can use the service, but I don't want to add all users to the local 
table -- only the users who are using the application.

Any suggestions? I've tried following what's in AuthLDAPLogin, but it 
tells me "Can't locate Jifty/Plugin/Login.pm".   Do I need to do 
something to get the Login plugin to install?
