Sounds very close yes.
Basic requirements of the system are:
* File based restrictions
- Who can view
- Who can edit (upload / replace)
* Simple version control
- eg: Keep old versions
- Mark current version (so you can be working on a draft)
* Simple MetaData
- Title, Description
- Last modified and who
* Simple organisation
- eg: Directories
- Not essential, but nice to know someone is working on it
This is for a group of about 25+ people, geographically diverse (all
around Australia) and all based on Web and simple system.
I will avoid DAV at this stage and stick to HTTP Post.
