There's no reason for the LDAP entity that backs the central login
service to have shell access on any of our systems - at least not by

The central login service should just create the LDAP entity for a new
user. If we integrate it with the shell accounts (which I think is a
good idea), users would first register with the central login service
and request a shell account giving their account name of the central
login service.

I'm sorry, but I most likely won't have time to participate in such a
meeting in the near future since I'm working on this in my rather
sparse spare time. However I'll try to answer emails (like I'm doing
now) as time permits to explain what I'm up to.
