as some of you might have read, the topic authentication and
authorization came up again on Github recently . There has been
some short comments on this on this list in last June .
So what is it about? The de facto standards for the two concepts in
Rails are Devise [3,4] and CanCan [5,6]. The question is, if we want
to replace authn/z in Foodsoft by the two modules.
What would we gain? From my point of view all the advantages of code
reuse, which among others include:
* profit from the open source community
* contribute to the community
* increase security
* less long-term maintenance
The main drawback I can see is the probably high short-term
implementation effort without any user-visible changes.
Nevertheless I would vote for the change because of the mentioned
Let us try to find a decision which everyone can support. Please share
your opinion on the list and maybe even repeat what you've written before.
