Welcome to the power of open source, you don't have to pay to get this 
done. I've already implemented storing clients in LDAP here at Red Hat. 
At Red Hat we believe in sharing and supporting the community. You're 
more than welcome to the code. Our plan all along had been to send the 
code upstream (i.e. give it to FreeRADIUS) but the project this was done 
for was put on hold and I was reassigned. We still plan on doing this 
but at a later date because of our internal schedules.

Now that the FreeRADIUS code base is in git it makes doing this even 
easier. I will try to take some time, even if it's my personal time to 
dust off the code and get it merged into a git repo which I'll publish. 
Do you have a time frame you need this by?

With respect to the OID's, we do have an LDAP schema defined but we used 
our own OID's out of expediency. It's trivial to change the OID's 
though. Alan does FreeRADIUS already have a block of OID's?

If you would like to make a contribution may I suggest you donate 
something to the FreeRADIUS project and/or purchase a RHEL subscription 
if you happen to be using one of the RHEL clones.
