Hi all,

I just worked on the topic these last 2 days. The main problem currently
is to add supplementary groups needed for some privileges (the typical
example being video IIRC).

To achieve the work, i first want to iterate with you on few items.

I'm finding that there is a need to have a kind of database mapping
privileges to groups that have to be added to the process. Is there any
plan about such knowledge DB? Do you expect it to be sqlite? Should it
be queried using client/server or directly?

After having put the groups directly, I'm now considering that it would
be better to ask for Cynara. This will be slower but will let the system
decide to grant or not the accesses after user confirmation if needed.
Do you agree?

Then what about an integration of the topic into cynara client API? Just
an idea because it seems changing too much things while the job can be
done in an other way.

I'm also asking me if other clients (tizen-extension-crosswalk for
example) will need to add groups dynamically?

Best regards
