We could probably turn this on pretty easily. I'm fine with doing it (then we'd at least be on-par with Gerrit auth) but we'd want to properly setup SSL for the domain.

Sorry for asking dummy questions: do you mean setup SSL in Phabricator or in the Labs instance? Or you can tell me directly who should I ping, and I will do it.

Well I was talking to Yuvi earlier today and we need an SSL cert for labs. I was using star.wmflabs.org cert, but Yuvi pointed out that we need to lock down the instance if we use it. The alternative is a self-signed cert (ick), or buying an explicit cert (feels like putting the cart before the horse if we haven't finished the RfC).
So yeah, I think we'll go with star.wmflabs.org. CCing Yuvi so he can say more.

Ryan slapped my hand several times for suggesting using LDAP auth for things inside Labs. His reasonable argument is that many people have access to Labs project instances that could trivially be used to capture passwords even with SSL in place for the connection.

Well maybe, maybe not. Ideal world would be OpenID/OAuth or something, not doing LDAP again. LDAP would be nothing more than a stop-gap between here and the ideal world.

Actually, I worry that a stopgap of LDAP is probably a bad idea in Labs. We generally have avoided proxying LDAP credentials through Labs instances; in fact, I think it's specifically against the policy. Has that changed, and if so, are there any other projects doing it?

We shouldn't do it in labs as you and Bryan point out. When I said "maybe maybe not" I meant in prod. I'd rather not go down the LDAP route unless we find the other options to be too impossible.
