Blacklight Access Controls (Colvard)
- Johnson raised this issue within hydra-head (https://github.com/samvera/hydra-head)
- Depends on blacklight-access-controls (https://github.com/projectblacklight/blacklight-access_controls)
- Split out from hydra-access-controls (https://github.com/samvera/hydra-head/tree/master/hydra-access-controls)
- Used to have similar read/discovery access controls
- Within the Blacklight context, this Gem hasn’t had activity since January
- Not under Samvera, hence it cannot be considered a Core Component
- It is sitting with some breaking changes in the master branch
- How to we insulate ourselves from potential changes in that Gem?
- How do we ensure stability in hydra-head?
- Perhaps we can fold it into samvera-labs?
- Does this fit into the scope of the permissioning WG? (Samvera Permissioning Analysis and Design Working Group)
- LaRita Robinson
- It should be, but Blacklight hasn't been explored too thoroughly
- The WG just undertook requirements gathering
- The intent would be to have the permissioning work would feed through a single interface
- There should be one source to manage the permissions within the Samvera application stack
- Does not depend upon the release candidate for blacklight-access-controls
- Perhaps we should wait to take action until the Permissioning WG proceeds with their work
- Is Blacklight a core component?
- No, Blacklight itself has maintainers outside of the community and its own governance structure
- Arguably, this should also be the case for blacklight-access-controls, but it is not receiving any maintenance
- Does the Samvera community need to own it under the Blacklight GitHub organization?
- Can we try and ensure that hydra-head is maintained without duplicating work between communities?
- Try and keep track of information, but permissions management is likely going to require some significant changes
- Maintenance should still be addressed, but the simplest changes should be the goal
- Ultimately the access controls for hydra should ultimately be deprecated
- If actions are taken, updates will be discussed on the samvera-tech mailing list
