RT 3.8.0 and LDAP hacks


#1

I’ve hacked our RT to do LDAP authentication/authorization. One bit of
what I did was based on Phillip Cole’s hacks from
http://rt.bestpractical.com/view/AutoCreateAndCanonicalizeUserInfo which
includes a hack to the LoadByEmail subroutine found in CurrentUser.pm.
I see that in 3.8.0, there no longer is a LoadByEmail subroutine in
CurrentUser.pm. So, I’m wondering whether I’ll need to continue to use
my hacked CurrentUser_Local::LoadByEmail. I also have a hacked
LoadByEmail in User_Local.pm. Any thoughts? Thanks.

In 3.8 RT::CurrentUser is read-only sub class of RT::User class, so
there is no need to duplicate the same LoadByEmail method.
