Hello All:

As you may know, I am planning the functionality for the Central Control System to be used for the SpaceWXnetwork (PSWS). Here, users will get their account (and token, etc.) which they use to upload the data they collect from their Tangerine.

HERE IS A QUESTION FOR YOU, an informal poll...

I am taking a number of design ideas from the SatNOGS network<https://network.satnogs.org/>, and designing around the Django web framework; however, there is something that is often suggested for Django-based web sites (that SatNOGS does not provide, as far as I can see)... I am wondering if users will want the following feature (I don't know yet if this will provide all the security features we need)...

You can set up a Django web site to allow log-in (authentication) using Google Accounts or Twitter accounts.    And/or, you can also provide your own authentication (that's what SatNOGS does).

WHAT IS YOUR OPINON? - Do you think the ability to log in (for Tangerine Data Upload) using your Google or Twitter Account is important, or should we not support this?
