You can do the 'anonymous read only access to all repositories' by
granting the global repository observer role to the 'guest' user.

I don't think LDAP groups have anything to do with it... the
permissions (authorization) are kept in the Redback users database and
LDAP is just consulted for authentication at login.

So you would grant repository 'observer' or 'manager' roles to each
person in Archiva as needed.

Happy to be proven wrong though, I've just recently started using LDAP
with Continuum/Archiva/Redback.
