Please don't restrict my ability to update my software with an
annoyingly-designed security system. Whether I believe that rapid
updates or slow, well-tested updates are a better model for my web
app, I shouldn't be forced into one or the other because of a security
model that annoys the user every time I change something.
And: it still doesn't help. Asking a user whether changes to a
not. No general security model can be built around requiring the user
to understand the technical issues behind the security.
