I am total LDAP newbie and I am just researching if I can use it for my next project or better stay away from it. The project will depend heavily on the concept of nested groups and I frequently need to know in which groups a user is (also in which supergroups), which users are in which group and how many people are in a group (including subgroups). I tried to read about nested groups in ldap but it is hard to find good literature on that topic. So far the best I found is: http://middleware.internet2.edu/dir/groups/docs/internet2-mace-dir-groups-best-practices-200210.htm which kind of recommends forward references.
Is there any other documentation describing nested group? By now I am not limited by an implementation so it can be e.g. openLDAP specific.
I am also open for all recommendations regarding nested groups.
