Content-based users and groups for Plone

Membrane is a set of PluggableAuthService (PAS) plug-ins that allow for the user-related behaviour and data (authentication, properties, roles, groups, etc.) to be obtained from content within a Plone site.  It does not actually provide a full member implementation, it is intended to be a set of tools from which a full implementation can be constructed.  It is meant to be flexible and pluggable, and easy to adapt to different deployment scenarios. It is not meant to be configured through-the-web-only, but to be adapted by filesystem code.

Membrane tries to take a step backwards and re-think some of the Plone membership-handling. We have tried to make it as simple as possible, so that grasping and extending it is simple. Hopefully, simplicity should also make it easier to make sure it is secure.

For information about the "why?" of Membrane, and some policies for helping out, please see MANIFESTO.txt.
