The day before yesterday I was trying to explain a particular 
authentication-situation we had in our application to a collegue, and I

I started an article as part of the community documentation to tries to 
explain how things work. It was very educating writing it - even if it 
is not finished yet at all. I hope it is somewhat educating for the 
readers as well...

I'm not sure where / when the community documentation will be available 
on the grok website, but you can read the source file here:


Encouragements, suggestions, critiques, questions highly appreciated!
