That's not a problem :-)
It can wait for a later date, as at the moment I'm fine using gitorious!

Ok. That's great, thanks.

So, if a user (maintainer with admin permissions?) has the necessary entry
in the ldap, then they should be able to change things in the maintainers
I don't think there will be a need to have write permissions to ldap, unless
we want to create maintainers in maint db app, and write that to the ldap.
I will send another email with a few questions about maint db later on.

OK. That's great thanks Michael.
Again I was thinking about a maintainer, that I should be doing a lookup in
ldap, but I could be testing that with my account I suppose.
