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
