yes, does anyone know?
i looked at the feature list in the readme and it seems to do
pretty much the same as webmin-ldap-user-simple. it does it in a
slighly different context, though: it is written in php and it is
apache based. php is frequently frowned upon because of its
crappy internal structure and development style. Apache is known
to be good, but we use webmin. that said, if one could have
agreed upon some other language then php (e.g. perl) both sides
could have saved themselfs some efford. We will continue working
on the user administration interface and are still looking for
people to work together with. However with debian-edu moving
towards cerebrum and kerberos, the air (aka the number of people
interested in the same goals) is getting thinner.
