Subject [PROPOSAL] Remove oAuth for 2.0
Date Thu, 10 Sep 2015 16:18:06 GMT
Heya all,

I just had occasion to look into 2.0s oAuth support and it looks like chttpd doesn’t ever
talk to couch_httpd_oauth.

In addition, oAuth in 1.x has only ever been half-baked (no automatic handling of tokens among
many other things), it is not maintained, and it is barely documented.

I propose to remove it from 2.0 and mark this as a breaking change.

If not, we have to make 2.0 work with what we have, and we’ll have to have somebody willing
to do the work.

What do you think?
