[equinox-dev] Equinox Security and role-based UI contributions

There is an ongoing discussion about how best to restrict the visibility of UI elements such as views, preferences, actions etc. based on the current user's role. See https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=201052

As pointed out by Scott Lewis on the bug (thanks!), there seems to be a relationship between this it and the Equinox Security incubator work: http://www.eclipse.org/equinox/incubator/security/

I wanted to let a wider audience know about these two things, in the hope that people who know about one can comment on the other, or perhaps just follow what's going on.
