For some people I had ongoing conversations with, generating grants over and over has been annoying. My idea was to make grants work more in the same spirit as tickets: have an usage count / time to last usage / total time limit, as for tickets. If you wanted to give someone a permanent way to exchange files with you, you would create a "permanent" grant, like you do for tickets. Otherwise, the grant would default to "unlimited files" (just use the grant again), with automatic expiry as soon as it's no longer used for a month. For existing setups that like the old behavior, you could just set a "1 upload" limit default. I've logged this here, as this is not exactly a "new" idea: https://github.com/wavexx/dl/issues/14 but there's increasing pressure in our institute to tackle at least it within a few months.
