@dansup oooh nice! I'm sure once you're comfortable; having it live at github.com/indieweb?language=p would be cool?

I'm moving my libraries there once I put them on GitHub (still iffy on that)

@jalcine suggestion: use very different layouts for "identity" and "data access"

identity = "a user with this name exists, and they tried to log in"

data access = stuff like create / update. "Wants to help you manage your account" could be a friendly wording

@riking I'm not sure I follow. follows indieauth.spec.indieweb.org/. No aspect of data management is done. The scopes described aren't even kept by outside of confirming that the service had the proper permissions to do what it was told to.

@jalcine oh, i guess i was confused about the scope definitions presented there
I think they mean the difference between Authentication and Authorization. Both are competed by #IndieAuth. For example Authentication would be logging in to the wiki (identity). Authorization is in a Micropub app (allows you to control data).
