Subject Re: [jira] Closed: (JSPWIKI-267) No consistent means for maintaining a user's unique identity
Date Tue, 10 Jun 2008 15:51:17 GMT
Terry -- the uid is part of the user profile, and it is stored in the  
database. That is the "means" for tracking a unique user. Because that  
work is complete, I closed the issue.

Do you have specific suggestions on how to "track"?
