+README for the Zope LDAPRoleExtender Product
+
+ This product is a fake user folder. All user objects are
+ retrieved from a "real" LDAPUserFolder and their roles
+ are extended with the help of LDAP group records found
+ underneath the specified groups base DN.
+
+
+ **Warning**
+
+ Using a LDAPRoleExtender will slow down authentication for
+ logged-in users wherever is is in effect. Maybe not by much,
+ but once you start nesting them it might become noticeable.
+
+
+ **Requirements**
+
+ In order for this product to run you will need to provide the
+ following items:
+
+ * a working LDAPUserFolder (see http://www.dataflake.org/)
+
+
+ **Tested Platforms**
+
+ This version of the LDAPRoleExtender has been written on and for
+ Zope 2.5.0 and up. I am not going to support earlier versions of
+ Zope with my product. I have run the LDAPRoleExtender successfully
+ on...
+
+ - Zope 2.5.1
+ - Zope 2.6.0 alpha 1
