Yikes, from 2012, and never resolved 8-/. I'm curious though why Howard
says the work has to be distributed to all the replicas locally as it
wouldn't scale otherwise? For adding or removing a user from a group,
replicating the memberOf attribute on the user in addition to the member
attribute on the group only doubles the replication load which doesn't
seem excessive. I suppose if you delete a group with a large membership
that would result in updating a large number of users, but that's no
different than if a delete a single user from a large number of groups,
which doesn't seem to cause any issues. Unless I'm misunderstanding

In any case, I suppose this ITS can be closed now too, with the same
resolution that the memberof overlay is no longer supported in a
replicated configuration and to switch to the dynlist implementation...
