We are successfully using LDAP and an external database with Moodle. This lets our scripts do all the work and it is working great. As a refinement to the automation of the process we would like to have group membership be defined in the external database as well. These groups are discussion sections (e.g. Stat 10, Lecture 1 has discussion sections A, B, and C.).
My question is: will groups be part of the external database schema someday and will logic be added to deal with this new data?
