Fedora Update Notification

Name        : python-repoze-what
Product     : Fedora 11
Version     : 1.0.8
Release     : 2.fc11
URL         : http://pypi.python.org/pypi/repoze.what
Summary     : Authorization for WSGI applications
Description :
`repoze.what` is an `authorization framework` for WSGI applications,
based on `repoze.who` (which deals with `authentication`).

On the one hand, it enables an authorization system based on the groups to
which the `authenticated or anonymous` user belongs and the permissions granted
to such groups by loading these groups and permissions into the request on the
way in to the downstream WSGI application.

And on the other hand, it enables you to manage your groups and permissions
from the application itself or another program, under a backend-independent
API. For example, it would be easy for you to switch from one back-end to
another, and even use this framework to migrate the data.

It's highly extensible, so it's very unlikely that it will get in your way.
Among other things, you can extend it to check for many other conditions (such
as checking that the user comes from a given country, based on her IP address,
for example).
