OAuth support in FusionForge, and the forge can tweets

We have been working in the frame of COCLICO on implementing support of the OAuth protocol, both as an OAuth provider/server (for instance for the needs of authentication to the OSLC server‘s Web Services), and an OAuth consumer/client.

That OAuth consumer has been put to work in order to connect to twitter’s API, so that the forge is now able to push news to tweeter and other IM services.

OAuth will, beyond twitter, allow the forge to interoperate with other web services supporting connections on behalf of users, instead of using fake accounts, or storing passwords in the databases.

All these are committed in FusionForge’s SVN trunk.
