      Description

      It's very confusing for someone who doesn't know either LDAP or AD well to read
      in the Active Directory plugin's help:

      "With this option, Hudson authenticates the username and the password through
      Active Directory. For this to work, Hudson must be running on a Windows machine
      that belongs to the domain. (To run Hudson on a Unix system and have it
      authenticate against Active Directory, use LDAP.)"

      According to a discussion in the mailing list it works, though:
      http://www.nabble.com/LDAP---Active-Directory-failing-to-authenticate-td18347093.html

      "It looks like the help wasn't updated. Mine says that too but it works find on
      RHEL. I was running AD plugin version 1.4. I just upgraded to 1.5 and that
      also works."

      Thus, the help text should be fixed.
