  Hence, from the user point-of-view, OAuth could be the way to improve their experience across
different applications with an enhanced privacy and security control in a simple and standard
method from desktop and web applications.
  The protocol was initially developed by the oauth.net community and now is under IETF standardization
process.
  
- The main idea behind OAuth is represented by the token concept. Each token grants access
to a site, for a specific resource (or a group of resources), and for a precise time-interval.

The user is only required to authenticate with the Provider of their original account, after
which that entity provides a re-usable to token to the Consumer who can use it to access resources
at the Provider, on the users behalf.
  
  Moreover, the total transparency to the user, that is completely unaware of using the protocol,
represents one of the main valuable characteristics of the specification.

  As a majority of the initial project members are existing ASF committers (TODO), we recognize
the desirability of running the project as a meritocracy.  We are eager to engage other members
of the community and operate to the standard of meritocracy that Apache emphasizes; we believe
this is the most effective method of growing our community and enabling widespread adoption.
