Comment (by martin):

As far as I can see, there are two issues in "just go to LDAP" - please,
whoever knows better, correct me, if I'm wrong:

1.) The vast majority of Wiki edits will refer to an author not available
in the LDAP user database after the switch, simply because most of them
don't match.

2.) There are more than 5k users in the Wiki user database, more than 20k
users in OSGeo LDAP and more than 1k overlapping user names between both,
which will lead to conflicting user names in the Wiki after the switch.

While 1.) will just disturb Wiki editors, because they don't "own" their
edits any more, 2.) will likely ask for a solution because it'll add
confusion in itself.
