Whiteboard

* KAuth support: DONE
  Already a branch in playground with a working helper, add the helper support to the module + fix bugs!
* LDAP support: TODO
  There is experimental implementation already, make it work! Also Add a LDAP mode in the GUI.
* /etc/gshadow support: DONE
  This file is used by shadow to store secrets about groups, in fact a group can has a password or a list of admins. When a group is created it should be added into /etc/group and into /etc/gshadow, like kuser does!
Features about group passwords and group admins can be planned for a next release.
* Move it into reviewboard and get it approved
* KUbuntu Community tasks:
  Testing, Help bambee integrate some features
