We have discussed these things before (of course), I think it was in the German part. I will try to look this up as soon as possible and post an answer here.Tracy Poff wrote: In the spirit of clarifying, then, please allow me to 'think out loud' about a few of the major requirements for the server.
Do you have plans already for dealing with these?
- 1. User authentication. It looks like dropwizard might handle this, but it's not clear to me if it's suitable. The description in the manual is rather sparse.
2. Versioning of the data. This is important--we'll need at least the ability to rollback destructive changes (even with trusted users, accidents can happen, after all) more gracefully than by restoring a database backup. I have absolutely no idea how to handle this. Perhaps there's some easy, standard way that I'm unaware of.
3. Accepting contributions. If I have not misunderstood, Oregami is intended to have a moderated contribution process, like Mobygames? Then some such system must also be built.
