    7479Note: In the multi-auth branch (2892), you need to set AUTHENTICATION_BACKENDS to a tuple, similar to MULTIAUTH_BACKENDS above.  the {{{authenticate}}} method looks for this setting in your settings.py file.  I have it working and all I have is:

    8590
    8691I also hacked the contrib.auth.models file to change the check_password function to check against our LDAP server, and added a few small functions to check the type of user account.  I know this will break next time I update the source, but I have a copy of that as well.  There is surely a better way, but I'm still learning.

    104116This is located in the contrib/auth/copy_of_backends.py file.  The two original models are still in the file as well.  I just added this one in the middle.
