As regular readers will know, one of the features I like most in DrProject
(and its predecessor, Trac
) is the RSS feed it automatically creates showing events from each project. Unfortunately, we've had to disable the feeds for class projects at U of T
, since we don't want students in one group to be able to see the check-in comments or ticket updates of another, and web-based blog reading services like Bloglines
haven't standardized on an authentication mechanism.
However, I've been seeing a lot of buzz about OpenID
recently, which has me wondering whether it's worth rolling the dice and incorporating support for it into DrProject
. Oh, and running some sort of authentication server in the department, tied into the IDs students are automatically allocated for courses. I don't want to venture into these waters without a guide --- anyone out there done this yet?
