Hi all, i have a gsoc idea, below are the details
The project objective is to build a framework for flexible Google Apps
User management from plone

The Plone-Gapps framework for user management

Complete Google Apps user management (CRUD-Create,Read,Update &
Delete) from Plone . The part of framework will implement provisioning
API , to synchronize Google Apps user data with current Plone user
management system and hence provide an easy and flexible management of
Google Apps account from plone.

Profit to Plone :

It tend to motivate organizations to use Plone , if they are planning
to implement Google Apps. As it will forward their Aim of
communication and collaboration. Its not at all easy to
programmatically integrate Google apps, Specially for non-technical
organizations. Hence adding another flag to Plone's powerful features
and support.

Enable Plone to extend its collaborative nature to the next level.
Specially in School's , College's and Universities. Even many
Organization have implemented Google apps

It will spread the wings of Plone's functionality , as google apps
could work in symphony with plone. It will facilitate the use of
Drupal by allowing Administrator of all organization ,schools and
university implementing Google apps to give User a holistic working

How i came up with this ?
Drupal has this feature, it was done by flyankur(Ankur saxena) in gsoc
2009. Recently i am in contact with flyankur.
