Subject [hudson] Simplified user accounts
Date Tue, 14 Apr 2009 11:06:43 GMT
Hi,

Currently the user accounts on our Hudson instances are fairly
heavyweight, with separate Unix accounts associated with each Hudson
account. Do we need this?

It would be easier if most users had just accounts for the Hudson web
interface, and you'd only get a corresponding Unix account if you
really needed to install extra software on the build servers.

For example, in the projects I'm involved with it would be useful to
give Hudson accounts to all or most of the committers so that they can
better inspect build settings and results, trigger new builds, and set
up new build jobs. None of these operations require command line
access.

BR,

Jukka Zitting
