In-Reply-To (49F8329C-7020001-robinson-org-nz)
I've now realised that what I asked for is one of the options already
built in to Greenstone - I was confusing it with protecting all
documents in a collection which is what the example collection does.

The method of adding a user appears to be one at a time. I am likely to
have say 500 users, and I would like to be able to change them in bulk.
I can also envisage users writing to say they have forgotten their
password, or being concerned that they cannot change the initial
password they were first registered with.

1. Is there a method of creating a file of users in bulk?
2. Is there some code that allows users to change their password, and to
automatically reset passwords when someone loses their password?

I realise this is probably away from Greenstone, and I may have to get
someone to do some programming for me. but its worth asking!

Thanks
Ed Robinson
