We're a team responsible for managing and improving the FreeBSD wiki.


This list should be kept in sync with the Project Administration page.


Wiki Administration

Securely Add A User

While every developer can add new developers directly to (e.g.) DevelopersGroup, MarkLinimon was told to do things differently due to security concerns.

su -m www -c "/usr/local/bin/moin --config-dir=/home/www/wiki account create --name <UserName> --email <email>" 

This way, you make sure that whoever is claiming the account actually has that email. Otherwise, if you merely add a entry in the ACL list, any random person can immediatelly log in as that account and start making changes.

/!\ MarkLinimon could use help generalizing his shell script to perform the first two tasks.
