First, is anyone actually using portals for anything useful ?
I've been looking at it and find some aspects of it attractive, but there
are a number of things which I'd like to see it handle, including:
problems with this are discussed in the paper but I'm more
interested in using it for one off's such as opening
- controlled access
I'd ideally like to be able to pre-create dirctories and/or
files under /p and have the portal use those to determine if
access should or should not be granted. This would allow you
to create /p/tcplisten/0.0.0.0/smtp owned by uucp, mode 700.
I'm in a bit of a dither about how to actually go about the second.
Other comments on the portal filesystem are most welcome.
