[Mageia-sysadm] Email change replication between identity and sympa

Hmm. Is there an LDAP schema available to have a look at, or some way I can go browse around it? I can see the Sympa scheme online so that's sorted.

 I also notice that there is an LDAP plugin available for Sympa; has anyone looked into this?

Hi Robert,

i tried to make me an overview on this topic.

In my opnion, the problem is that the identity page and sympa a bon to the same ldap. So changing your email address on identity does not change it in sympa, indeed it just makes a new identity available. Cause sympa does not rewrite or forget your old subscription bonding. It is just a new account. Only way as i see it, would bonding to an user id on both sides. 

Kind regards

 Hi, I recently came across this:  However there are many areas where it's possible to help without having root access. For instance : - we need to find a solution so that email changed on identity.mageia.org http://identity.mageia.org/  is automatically changed on sympa mailing lists. This require making some changes to identity and/or sympa.  Has this issue been resolved? If not, I feel I may be able to resolve it; it would most likely require some level of access to the databases holding the email information, but I feel it would be pretty trivial to setup some sort of trigger which will update sympa if identity.mageia.org is updated (and vice versa?). To this end, I have submitted an account request in bugzilla. Regards, Ross
