Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

FlightGear Security

Background

Cquote1.png With the support for multiple hangar definitions in the launcher, users are going to be encouraged to download aircraft by the convenience of just being able to click on a button. I know that I'm not going to be able to judge the safety of Bob's Brilliant Hangar and the aircraft inside. So I am going to rely on the security we provide within FG itself to ensure that the aircraft aren't going to nuke user-level data, and to a lesser extent read the contents of my home directory. I don't think it's sufficient to rely on users having set permissions correctly.
