Subject Authzperf coming to trunk soon
Date Sat, 17 Dec 2016 08:52:31 GMT
Hi all,

I think the new authz implementation is ready to be merged to /trunk
and plan to merge it on 1/1/17.  Until then, only two discrepancies
with /trunk behavior need to be fixed (registry support and one
precedence issue), see also BRANCH-README.  I already have the code
available and only need to brush it up and commit it.

The main benefits of the new code are:

* Support for wildcard rules
* Memory and runtime efficiency
* Extensibility, i.e. more rights may easily be added

More info can be found here:
https://wiki.apache.org/subversion/AuthzImprovements

Adding more access rights, like e.g. traversal rights, is something
we could easily implement on /trunk but may want to postpone past
1.10 anyway.  So, there is no need to clear the TODO before merging.

-- Stefan^2.
