Subject doc permission mask proposal
Date Wed, 27 Apr 2011 10:36:54 GMT
I'm thinking to add simple permissions handling to a doc by using
_uid, _gid, _mod members to a doc where members are defined like this:

_uid: user owning the doc
_gid: group owning the doc
_mod: octal number, doc mode bits corresponding to chmod(1) values.

By doing this and if enable in settings we could do simple acl
handling like a file system when getting doc. access to views would be
handled by the access to the design doc containing them.

thoughts ?
