Subject: RE: FIXED: [xri] Lightweight authority service

Argh. There are some MS Word inserted back-double-quotes in one of the XML files in that zip file that you should replace with regular ascii double quotes so it is real XML.

OK, I found a couple of bugs already - you can try this package instead. (also s/QXRI/Query/ from my note below).
Once you install (replace the ~gwachob part in the .htaccess with ~yourname and replace ~xriauth with ~yourname), try going to the following URIs (you'll have to modify the hostname and the ~user part):
http://xri.example.com/~xriauth/xri/urn:prov1/*not.there (example of what happens when not registered)

Subject: [xri] Lightweight authority service

I spent 2.5 hours today seeing if I couldn't write a 90% compliant XRI authority service. I think I did it, using a file-based store.
Obviously not a complete enterprise solution, but I suspect something like this is a 80/20 solution for those folks wanting to be their own XRI authority.
This should run under anywhere you have python + apache (though with windows its always a pain to get CGI's working under Apache).  You'll need to view the .htaccess file and edit that appropriately (the RewriteBase in particular).
Should be sorta self-documenting. Its really simple and minimally conformant (and I won't even guarantee that). It dynamically adds the Expires/ProviderId/QXRI fields to static data kept in files on the disk. Not that exciting, but proves the lightweightness, I think, on the server side.
Now, the client side (and the proxy) - I'm getting more worried about that...
