I wrote a minimal exporter for user information (no group or acl
information) that gets synced to the dacs host. That enables dacs enabled
services to use these information. 

Please keep in mind that dacs is not available for non dsa enabled hosts.

Alioth uses some role based model where specific permissions get mapped to
(pre-)defined roles. We will never be able to get that into a different
system et al. My current plans are limited to group information and admin
flags. Everything else will need to get redefined by the admins to the
specific system.

I am also not very keen on using a system with a "open core / enterprise"
model. For such a crucial service I would really prefer a real open source
system. But maybe I am alone with that oppinion.
