[opensuse-buildservice] Mixed LDAP / local OBS users
Good morning,

after the update to 2.8.3, I found that local users (most prominent the Admin
user ;)) no longer work, when LDAP mode is

It was pretty easy to get the existing users to work again:

+++ app/models/user.rb 2017-09-20 06:45:18.666231345 +0000

# in the database. Returns the user or nil if he could not be found
def self.find_with_credentials(login, password)
if CONFIG['ldap_mode'] == :on
- return find_with_credentials_via_ldap(login, password)
+ user = find_with_credentials_via_ldap(login, password)
+ if user
+ return user
+ end

user = find_by_login(login)

This still does not enable me to create new users (as admin), because I'm just
sent to the Sign Up page, which then
tells me that new users can only sign up via LDAP.

While looking to also fix that and let an admin allow to create (and edit)
local users, I found that in git master many
more changes have been made to make this virtually impossible.

So I'm asking why this usecase is actively destroyed. Local OBS users (apart
from the obvious Admin user) are useful
e.g. as technical accounts, for automation jobs etc. which are not always
possible to get into a corporate user directory.
