Re: Move security-examples repo to Java EE org at GitHub?

Will Hopkins

OK, I'll do that then.

To summarize:
  • I'll move the security-examples repo to the Java EE org, probably within the next several days.
  • At some point soon, I'll preserve the "authorization" proposals from security-proposals, as a security-spec issue, with the code content either attached to the issue or preserved in gh-pages there.
  • I will then delete the remaining, unneeded repos at (i.e., security-spec, which has been cloned to, and security-proposals, which will no longer have any content that we need to preserve), and the organization itself.
I'm in no hurry to do anything except move the security-examples repo, but will proceed with the rest at some point over the next several weeks if I don't hear any objections.

Werner, I'm not sure what this is in reference to. Is it the security-proposals repo?

If so, I think the question is about the nature and value of the content, and whether, therefore, it should be preserved.

I just took a look at what's there, and I think we actually implemented almost all of it -- everything except the "authorization" module -- so maybe the thing to do is to zip up the authorization module, and attach it to a security-spec issue for a future 1.1 or MR release. That way it will be available as a starting point for any future work we undertake. (If we can't attach files, perhaps we can check it into gh-pages and link to it from the issue.)
I was about to propose that. Moving it to the gh-pages branch (or another "proposals" branch, linked from the website) would be enough for me. That, in addition to the old documents would constitute a solid historic reference.

Does that seem reasonable?

Java EE Examples would sound more like the examples, but in theory could host the proposals, because it has a lot of fancy stuff like Docker or JBoss Forge samples.

Arjan, do you have admin rights there? Or somebody else?
Otherwise I could only think of a personal repo by someone.
