It has come to our attention that this month's meeting announcement
may not have been successfully forwarded from
trilug-announce at trilug.org to the main trilug mailing list.  Please
see Justis' original announcement copied below, and we hope to see you
all there!

Consequently, anyone who has mad mailman skillz should feel free run
for Steering Committee -- clearly we could use your expertise.

Subject: [TriLUG-announce] May 12 meeting: LDAP and Identity
Management (plus SC elections)
To: TriLUG Announce <trilug-announce at trilug.org>

Topic: LDAP and Identity Management

Presenter: Jeremy Agee
When: 7PM, Thursday May 12, 2011
Where: Red Hat Worldwide Headquarters
Permalink: http://trilug.org/2011-05-12/ldap

Jeremy Agee works in Red Hat's Identity Management group, where he
helps enterprise customers set up systems to manage users and
resources. He knows from personal experience that getting started with
user management systems can be tough, but it does not have to be.

Most of us have probably seen pieces of the puzzle. Jeremy will fill
in those gaps, introducing us to the basic structure and concepts of
managing users. He will walk through an installation of OpenLDAP so we
can set up an LDAP server ourselves. Finally, he will touch on some
advanced topics, so that we'll know what pieces might be left to build

Join us for this in-depth "how-to" talk. It promises to be educational and fun.

NOTE - Elections for the 2011/2012 Steering Committee will be held
before the presentation. You must be a TriLUG member (either already,
or having filled out a membership form at the April meeting) to vote.
