don't mind doing it, but last time I checked, it was targeting existing
backends like LDAP or Active Directory so not FAS (which is our backend
for ACO)

Once existing users have signed to ACO , we'll probably be able to do a
matching table and see how MantisBT allow external authentication. But
the real problem is that all existing users will have to then signup
manually on ACO (we can't "bulk register" users because also of email
validation step that is mandatory)
