Idea

You know what's really annoying about new people like me?

Always trying to improve things.

How about encrypted keys for logging into AUR, because the timeouts suck.

I have packages to contribute and no time to waste!

Re: Idea

Ya know, I hate the timeouts too - it's real irritating especially when you just want to view something and it boots you to the "login again" screen....

Re: Idea

I haven't tried this, but is it possible to hijack someones package in the AUR, and put your own version out there?

That's why I'm thinking ssh keys.  There is a clear warning about the stuff, and my assumption is that as soon as it gets certified that it has to be recertified if anything changes.

Re: Idea

ssh keys? That is trying to use a mallet to fix broken glass. Wrong tool for the job.

Just use php session handling, and maybe hash the username and password and last ip address they used if you need such a thing. Then have it expire after a few days..or when the ip changes.
