At the moment, the entire website - including different parts of it like 
the forums are integrated into a single signon using a sql backend. If 
we just do a one-time copy of accounts, that would mean new users on the 
website dont get accounts on the forums.

so perhaps we could have a single account-creating process that creates 
all relevant accounts on all the different setups, and then move each 
one of them one-by-one to use a single ldap backend.

Atleast bugs.centos.org, forums.centos.org, wiki.centos.org and 
www.centos.org could use this treatment.

Ofcourse, if someone was brave enough, there might be an attempt at 
bringing all these into one ldap instance at the same time :)
