[hackers] Transparency

2003-07-31 Thread Neil Drumm
Right now we are kinda opaque. People have to sign up to see whats going on. I can do 
whatever with the Drupal permissions or even use a second instance of Drupal for our 
internal communicaion. Are we okay with letting our lurkers be anonymous? I plan on 
letting them have privileges to view most things.

Yes this makes sense to me - but i think they should be authenticated
before they can submit things. Comments?

Submit content, as in posts, blogs, profiles, endorsements.. right? not
scripts/code etc.. I haven't seen any specs indicating we 're inviting folks
to submit the latter (at this stage) to DeanSpace (correct?); obviously that
would be a blood red flag given all the karl rove wannabes out there; fake
registration info, etc...

If I'm stating the painfully obvious here; proceed with eye rolls and carry
on...

Hey Neil, is there a sandbox link to see the DeanSpace theme? I downloaded
and installed but can't get it to take in my test enviro; bluesky and the
others load fine though(?); debug time (where's my boss...)

Thanks
CMR

Submit things - as in be active in development conversations.  This means
using the communication tools, posting blog entries, etc.  Depending on
what we do with the CVS (keep SF or set up out own tree) we can handle
code submission authentication in the same way.

Right, authenticated to submit anything except comments. And different levels of 
authentication:

Anonymous: Read and comment
Authenicated: more privileges, but not a lot
Developer: All of us, submit just about anything and probably some editing
Admin: Admin, editing.

Yes...

But you proposed a new descision :)

Should we differentiate (through authentication) between non developers
who are active in the community - and active developers?

I.E. give lurkers less rights than participants?  I am leaning yes - but
what do you guys think?
