Description: ------------ I created a patch[1] for Auth that implements a changePassword function. It accepts two simple arguments(username, new password) and returns true, false, or AUTH_METHOD_NOT_SUPPORTED. It's documented, commented, and tested. I also provided implementations for this method in all 4 containers that currently support Adding/removing users. DB, File, MDB, and SMBPasswd. All worked fine in my test environment. The generic Container also implements an empty function that merely returns AUTH_METHOD_NOT_SUPPORTED, and Auth itself implements a function that calls the Container's function. Each function was added using the same CS and style as the other functions around it so they'll be easy to maintain by the curreny maintainers. I also fixed some typo's in the inline-documentation, updated some minor strings/docs/comments to make them easier to understand, and fixed some CS violations ( if(..){, else on seperate lines, whitespace). I also added this function to the package.xml'sc Changelog. Sorry if this is bad practice :) This patch includes the patch provided by "m at tacker dot org " in Bug #798 [2] for DB.php. Also, I noticed the docs for Auth[3] are somewhat outdated. THey don't mention the new add/remove user functions, nor some of the other new functions of the program. Could someone advise how I'd best proceed to get these added to the manual? :) Could someone please import this patch into CVS? Thanks in advance :) [1] [2] [3]
