Subject [jira] Commented: (INFRA-391) Create a web application for creating and editing ~/.forward files
Date Mon, 19 Sep 2005 12:48:54 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-391?page=comments#action_12329836 ] 

Joshua Slive commented on INFRA-391:
------------------------------------

Leo, the issue for me is that this doesn't seem like a step in the right direction.  Editting
user-owned files over the web has a whole different set of challenges compared to editting
httpd-owned files.

As with everything in apache-land, this will actually happen when someone with the time, the
priveleges, and the necessary knowledge (qmail in this case) just goes ahead and does it.
 Writing the code is not usually the bottleneck.

> We need a simple yet secure web application that allows our committers to log in using
their SVN id and password that can be used to create or update their .forward file. Currently
these files live on people.apache.org, but the webapp should be flexible to moving them around.
> Additionally, the info from the .forward files may end up in LDAP at some point, so the
web application should be built with that in mind.
> This issue is related to the asf-workflow project in development as part of the google
Summer of Code (http://wiki.apache.org/general/SummerOfCode2005), and may be tackled as part
of that project.
