+1. That's a great addition to G-Reg's list of features as well. IMHO, we
should be able to encrypt content as well as property values, the rest of
the metadata can be in plain text. We also need to design a filter which
will be used to determine what resources need encryption/decryption. So,
let's have a chat on this sometime during this week.
Also, long-term, we need to create a generic set of utilities which can be
used to interact with SCM tools. Ex:- Handler which makes it possible to
store and fetch content from SVN while maintaining metadata inside the
repository. Will be done later though.
So, how about a new bundle under the registry component,
org.wso2.carbon.registry.utils to contain such utilities?
