    I work at an educational institution and was floating ideas around in my head. What would it take to setup blogs for all the students? I figure I could authenticate with an existing LDAP and design a script to automatically setup the blog upon request and successful authentication.

    Are there still problems with large scale, multi-blog instalations like this? Is there an LDAP authentication method? If not, what

    Some good links. Thanks! I'm not likely to implement it this year, but want to start thinking about it.

    Due to your help, I moved the discussion to http://blogs.linux.ie/support/topic.php?id=17#post-52 and got ahold of Alistair who is now working the direction of getting LDAP support for MU running.
