[sudo-users] Looking for help

I am working on a open friendly open source projects IPA
(www.freeipa.org) and SSSD (https://fedorahosted.org/sssd/)
IPA is a central server for identity and authentication, SSSD is the
client replacing nss_ldap, pam_krb5. SSSD supports offline caching of
identities and multi-domain support. More details here:

We plan to integrate SSSD with SUDO and provide centrally saved SUDOERS
information as soon as SUDO pluggable policy checking interface would
become available.
But for now we are focusing on the server side aspects and want to be
able to serve SUDO information from IPA directly. However we decided to
not only integrate SUDOERS LDAP schema but take a step further and
integrate it with the identity objects IPA manages. The detailed design
of this effort can be found here.

So there are couple things we looking for help with:
1) A review of the design. Please reply directly to me or send mails to
freeipa-devel at redhat.com. This will be much, much appreciated!!!
2) Does anyone have a sample LDIF file of the sudo rules we can use for
testing? It does not matter for which LDAP server it is. 

Thank you very much for your help.
Looking forward to working with you.

Thank you,
Dmitri Pal
