[EP-tech] Re: EPrints ACL's status (EPACL or alternatives)

John, hi again,

I'm glad I was so lucky in terms of timeliness with respect to ACL integration on EPrints! :)

As far as our authentication/authorisation specs are concerned, we are aiming for shibboleth, and if not available, LDAP.

We will gladly serve as your beta-testers, so feel free to inform this list when the package is ready! And don't worry about the "looks", it's EPrints right?! :):)

John B and I have got the end of this week, and all next week block-booked to work on this :o)

We're close to a functioning system - it will work (but it might not look pretty).

If you have specific requirements (specifically around what systems you'd like to be able to authorise a user - LDAP / Shibboleth / OpenID type stuff), let us know - it may be something we've covered, or it might be something that will help us complete the picture!

Subject: [EP-tech] EPrints ACL's status (EPACL or alternatives)

Hello everyone,

I've read about EPrints ACL support in
http://wiki.eprints.org/w/EPrints_User_Group_2015-01-13. It seems that
this project is a work-in-progress. Does anybody know what its status
(EPACL) is at the moment and if/when it will be available as a plugin?
If not, are there any other alternatives that allow finer grain
privileges in EPrints? I've seen that some of EPACL developers are
posting in this list, so I assume that an "authoritative" answer could
be provided :).

Thanks all in advance,
