We had an interesting discussion around this at the community summit.  The context was mostly around AD but the consensus was that most people using AD/LDAP do so because they already have a great interface or good software for managing users and there was no use building this into Chef.  However there was a desire to be able to communicate with an existing LDAP infrastructure, for example a nice library to check if a user is in a particular group.

Subject: [chef-dev] Create ldap users LWRP

Maybe I am missing something...  I am surprised that I cannot find a LWRP to create ldap users.  I would have thought it common to iterate over a data_bag set managing ldap users.  When I search around I do not find evidence that this is common, i.e. no LWRP for creating ldap users...  Would this be a bad practice for some reason I do not see?  Or is there some other reason no one has yet to create and publish a LWRP for this?
