What is the difference to PL2?
It is developed in openstreetmap.org svn repository and Tom Hughes updates the binary regularly for rails . We should go all the way and even use the same authentication method. I don't know the details, but apparently an OAuth token is automatically issued for Potlatch 2 the first time it is used.
Getting rid of 2 layers of authentication and replacing it by default login on openstreetmap.org is a huge usability improvement and in my opinion worth the trouble and loss of control.
