'mkapachepw' is an Apache user/group management package with a 
rich set of features:

  - Automatically Create Apache Users/Groups From Underlying OS Users/Groups:

    'mkapachepw' can extract any or all Unix system users and/or 
    groups and automatically include them in the production
    Apache user and group files.  This makes it easy to
    manage users via the traditional Unix tools and propagate
    this information for Apache's use.  Note that for this to work,
    Apache has to understand the hash algorithm the underlying
    Unix system uses to encrypt password.

  - Break Large, Complex User & Group Data Into Separately Managed Files:

    User/Group files can be constructed out of any number of
    subsidiary files.  This allows the webmaster to combine
    separate user and group files that are independently
    managed by, say, Marketing, Engineering, Sales, and so on, 
    into single, production Apache user and group files.

  - Specify Which Particular Users/Groups Are To Be Included Or Excluded:

    Specific users and/or groups can be explicitly included or
    excluded in the final user and group files.  This can
    be done by name, UID, or GID.  These in/exclusions are applied
    to both system users/groups, as well as those found in the
    subsidiary files.

  - Catch (And Prevent) Redefinition Of User/Groups:

    "Collisions" of users or groups are caught, and optionally,
    prevented.   Say the Marketing user file has a user
    named "bob", and so does Engineering.  If an attempt is
    made to consolitate these two subsidiary files into a single
    Apache user file, 'mkapachepw' will, by default, issue
    a warning (and the last definition will be that one loaded
    into the Apache user file).   A command line switch is
    available to prevent this entirely by issuing an error and
    exiting on the first collision encountered.

'mkapachepw' is a pure-Python application and should run on
any Unix system that support Python 2.4 or later.  The program
is known to work on FreeBSD.

'mkapachepw' is free for individual, non-commerical, personal
use.   Use in any setting where there is any remuneration,
direct or indirect, requires payment of a licensing fee.

Individual, multiple, and enterprise licensing is available.
