RT2 provides somewhat cleaner hooks than RT1 to allow user
and auth to be done against external databases, though nobody that
I know of has actually done it yet. Note, however, that you
will still need to have an RT account for each user inside of
RT’s database…it’s just that RT can then ask another system
for detailed information…
Which would be fine enough for our purposes - not everybody should have
access to the request tracker, but those that do shouldn’t be bothered by
an additional password handling mechanism.
