maiden_taiwan asks: "We're constructing a free groupware application by integrating well-known
open source components:
inn news server,
scp for file transfer, etc.
Unfortunately, each app has its own incompatible concept of a
'user identity.' Apache has the
module, IRC has nicknames,
scp has public keys, NetNews has the poster's email
address, and so forth. Has anyone managed to integrate a similar
suite of apps using a single sign-on model, where a user has a single
identity that is understood and carried through all these apps?"
Real Programs don't use shared text. Otherwise, how can they use functions
for scratch space after they are finished calling them?
