    I have fixed the Role reset bug in Multi-site installations. I'd like to make it available - is there a process for submitting it to this codebase?

    If the plugin author does not respond, you might write a blog post on your method, so others can try it.

    Do you have it working with WP 3.5.1 ?

    Yes, my fixes were tested on WP 3.5.1.

    It's not so much a method I used as that I replaced various deprecated function calls in the code. I'd rather the project be continued so that the entire community can take advantage of such fixes - and contribute theirs in turn.

    To that end, we (work) are discussing the possibility of forking this project and maintaining it for the community. If that looks like it's going to take an abnormally long amount of time, I may just make our fixed code available as an interim solution.

    GitHub is a good place to get a community behind your project, regardless of whether you create a WP.org plugin.

    The University where I work has just incorporated CAS on our multisite blogs and a CMS, and it's working well. We'll be rolling it out on as many user systems as possible.

    Our developer has made a few plugin changes to pull info from LDAP to pre-populate user email & name as well... so I'm sure he'd be interested in contributing to the project.

    Our Holy Grail would be a hybrid that allows both CAS authentication and XML-RPC publishing.

    The problem isn't where to host it, it's getting permission from management. Technically, the State owns the changes I made since I did so on the college's clock and using their resources. As I'm sure you're aware, those wheels turn slowly ;-)

    For those who are interested, we have forked this project and published our fixed version at Github:
