New Groups and Permissions Implementation for uPortal

A couple weeks ago (March 17 - 21), I spent a very satisfying and productive week working at Johns Hopkins University. Chris Doyle and I spent the bulk of it developing something I consider to be a real gem: an implementation of uPortal's Groups and Permissions (GaP) API that discovers groups maintained in an LDAP directory and makes them available for use in the portal. You can find a more complete description of this technology, its features, and configuration at this wiki page.
