#5 closed enhancement (fixed)

remote user creation

The user access management per project by its developer (ticket #4) points the way to remote user account management also. We can have another Perl CGI script running as root, which checks out the passwd file from the ROEadmin repository. Any developer on the ROEadmin project can then remotely check out, modify and commit the passwd file, then invoke the CGI script to put the file where it has an effect.

It is a cron job instead. It runs every hour and does an svn update to update the password file from the svn repository. In this the repository is not used via HTTPS/WebDAV, but as a local file: URL. So there is no authentication necessary.
