#80 new enhancement

autoinstallers should filter spam by default

Reported by: geofft Owned by:
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: autoinstallers Keywords:


Autoinstallers always get overrun with spam, which sucks. There are two ways to deal with this:

1) Install a plugin (like Akismet for WordPress?, or something with reCaptcha, or...) that filters spam intelligently.

2) Make autoinstallers default to requiring an account and/or certs (or net-18?) to edit, and provide documentation on the fact that this is the case and how to disable it.

Disowning; I have no particular plans here (I think the extent of the state that I have is some Akismet credentials, which I've forwarded on to scripts-root or scripts-team or something).

This might be better turned into n separate tickets. Although perhaps we want to first set up an Akismet API proxy so that we don't have to put the scripts credentials in each autoinstalled app.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
