Ticket #1 (new enhancement)
option to control userfile changes with sharing flags (Bug #59)
|Reported by:||Ben Dover||Owned by:|
add option to control changes to user files
a bot would reject any userfile changes unless the bot requesting the change is
set botattr +p
this would prevent a remote slave bot from altering the master bot's user files.
global-* are not the answer. they can only be used on the top master.
with multi-level linking, allowing the +p flag to control changes would allow
intermediate bots to reject changes from slave bots linked to them but allow
changes from the upstream master bot.
provides more protection from a less secure slave bot from being hacked and used
to make mass changes on the secure master bot's records.
