Subject [jira] [Commented] (CLEREZZA-515) ugly account name when logging into ZZ with a foreign WebID
Date Sun, 22 May 2011 09:53:47 GMT


Henry Story commented on CLEREZZA-515:

Btw, it is only by putting up such a patch that one can then think of improvements.  It was
important to show how this worked.

For example perhaps what we should do in Clerezza is ask that all Principals implement another
interface so Clerezza can be open to new
types of logins without those needing to be placed into the core authentication module. Since
for the moment there is only WebID and account name principals, I think it can be done this
way. But I would certainly be for abstracting things away more if this can be shown to work.
