I've been working with chef-server now for a bit as we're looking for a good way to manage both physical and cloud based instances. Chef certainly does this quite well, however, when you have multiple organizations and people managing the same servers it becomes difficult to properly control things. Looking at the Opscode Platform, there's a ton of control for this (RBAC and multiple organizations). I would like to possibly implement similar controls using (Open)LDAP as the backend and wondering if anyone else has gone down this road. If you have any insight at all at possible problems, or a working proof of concept I think this would be a great addition for the chef community.
I can be reached as "crazed" in #chef-hacking (freenode) if you want to discuss this elsewhere.
