Now , It has been more than  a week and this blog is coming up late so time for some weekly update ,  had a meeting today with my mentor Malveeka and told her about my progress , the past few days been busy with the working over CGI and coding for the OpenID scripts to integrate it with the current Mailman version i.e. 2.10 . The CGI are simply processed and run by the CGI-Bin so I had to configure from the source and mentioning of the new CGI-Bin to be used by changing the CGI_PROGS to add the new CGI as the request handler for the script to run when the user provides her identifier which is then processed to take and provide the authentication to be used I did some of the work for the CGI’s as mentioned now , the next plan goes like when the useris verified then she is redirected to her page where she will be having the list of ML to which she is subscribed and can switch to any of the list without bothering about the passwords that were earlier handled for each list.

How the user would be managing the password and which password to be used , for this there would be  the editable settings in the user’s Option page where she can choose the password to be of diffrent list, to which she is subscribed , and make use the password for the diffrent list.

How the change in the database is being reflected ?

1.) When the user comes to the ‘Listinfo’ page and chooses to use her openid , she is redirected to the providers page from where she is verified and returned back to her own lists page. Now there is a query in the Membership table about selecting the address ,password and list which will be used for the selection  and verifying the authentication for the user.

2.) When she is redirected back to own her listpage , the option could be to use the diffrent password , a seprate table which will store the listname and password with the reference to the username (i.e.the email address) ,the query will be selected to update the listname and choose password from the membership table to get it updated into the refernce table.

Now , the time to complete my work on  CGI which I try to do this weekend . Some of the screenshots to the work I did.
