Not the whole world maybe, but people with either a login or a user name.

Create an account thep with standard pwd that can read everything here. Anyone else should not read our discussions eventhough none should know about this address.

A thep account for reading purposes only sounds good.

I meant login or IP-adress... (I guess login and user name is sort of the same thing...)

No absolutely not. If we close down anonymous viewing, the RSS Feed will not work as most RSS readers e.g. Thunderbird are anonymous. I prefer to keep the RSS channel open, and instead we could be strict on not publishing anchors to Zanzibar. After all if there are no link from the outer world Google and other spiders have a hard time finding this part of the web. I am uncertain about links in the other direction, i.e. links to e.g. Google from Zanzibar, but it could also be a problem. Anyway, if you are afraid of having non-significants reading here you should probably keep out all kinds of gossiping and BSing like this. ;)

Summary: In my opinion this ticket could be closed and this Trac site should be kept open.

Question: Why would we want to prevent outsiders to read our trac?

I see no reason to block anyone from this trac, I just wanted your opinions. Also I wanted to make everyone aware of the fact that everyone can read this trac (at least for now).
