[TYPO3-typo3org] Authentication against typo3.org fe_users

I suggest we split this subject into two tasks and add them to the
volunteers list on typo3.org.


1) LDAP evaluation
   - Check if LDAP is really needed or if plain SQL authentication would be
     sufficient for the projects mentioned below
     => anyone?

   - If LDAP is needed: Move fe_users of typo3.org into an LDAP repository
     => needs support from punkt.de who are probably familar with LDAP

2) Migration of trusted components
   - Change typo3.org to do LDAP authentication
   - Change INN (news server) to do LDAP authentication
   - Change issue tracker (Mantis/Trac?) to do LDAP authentication
   - Change Wiki (MediaWiki/Trac?) to do LDAP authentication

Btw. I think that this makes only sense for centralizing the authentication
but not the levels of authorisation.
