Question about web applications



Hi,

I submitted ampache (http://ampache.org/) for review, but I was told that it could not use any external software
bundled in the code. In fact, it uses getid3, a file that seems to come from horde (horde/Browser.php),
and some others.

According to the weekpedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ampache)

"Ampache has been featured in numerous online blogs and technical articles. One of the more notable was the O'Reilly book Spidering Hacks which tested the security of online applications. Ampache was found to be immune to standard spidering hacks as described in the O'Reilly article, and it has continued that trend by focusing on security during its development. The Code Philosophy listed on Ampache's wiki specifically lists security as one of those most important considerations during application development."

Does it make any sense to fiddle something that has always had security as a prime concern?

Any comment is welcome.

Thanks.
