  Description     : Groupid tracking plugin for the LCMAPS authorization framework

The local Centre MAPping Service (LCMAPS) is a security middleware
component that processes the users Grid credentials (typically X.509
proxy certificates and VOMS attributes) and maps the user to a local
account based on the site local policy.

This package contains the tracking group ID plug-in. This plug-in will
add one or more secondary Group IDs to the final mapping result. Some
batch systems can be configured to add a unique group ID to a batch
job to be able to track its movements; this should be preserved even
across user ID switches through LCMAPS.
