Hi Stuart,

>(b) A course request form (which includes authentication and authorization)
>generates the XML files containing course descriptions.

Is there an existing form where one can try this out. Here at fsu, an 
instructor requests a course from a well established web-site. Currently, 
the instructor has the option to request a BB course or a web-MC course. I 
like to have lon-capa added as one of the option. Now since the instructor 
has to sign in to get to this request form, the username and course or 
courses he/she is teaching will then be passed on to the lon-capa course 
request form. If this form resides on the library server, then the course 
info can be saved directly to /home/httpd/perl/tmp/addcourse/$dom/pending 
after which the Autocreate.pl can take over.
