Hi All,

We're thinking of requiring you to be a logged in user to edit or
create data packages on thedatahub.org. Why?

a) Increasing spam (due to increasing popularity :-) )
b) Register and login via username and password (so UX of register /
login is much simpler)
c) Ability to see who made all edits (useful for stats etc)

Anyone think this is a bad idea?

@Anja: would this effect your LOD contributors?
