Subject Re: Email validation and default groups

I am using 1.5, would be great to get inte using triggers for internal
stuff and get going on the self service app. that one is necessary
even for crowd since using it disables the account sign us and
management features of e.g. jira.
i imagine a small web app or standalone via osgi with embedde mea
server and spring ldap.
 I think this is a common admin client like ldap studio and should
reside here and be very flexible in terms of skimming.
i could start something in the ops4j laboratory in order to get going
next week?
