Re: how do YOU use LDAP?

We use it for PKI-issues
- storing/deploying certificates
- CRLs

Openldap is used here mostly for testing purposes, as our customers use 
other, comercial directories.

(and at home I build up a logbook for amateurradio with openldap. Are here 
any hams on the list? :)

Here at RPI, I am using LDAP for login/POSIX account info, and I would
like to expand uses.  Is there a drawback to a single directory service,
of many parts, that can be accessed by multiple applications?  Or,
should services be narrow in scope?

Please contribute to a lively discussion.  Thanks
