Note that I said "fake" accounts, not "spam".

Remember that creating OSGeo LDAP user ID's has been kept very simple by intention, not just by accident. I don't think there's a particular "attack", they're just using the form we provide.

OSGeo LDAP currently has approx. 18k user ID's, but, as far as I understand, most of these are not members of any of our project or shell groups.
