I think this needs [2013] added to the title.

It says itself that it's a slight modification to a 2002 paper.

The 2002 paper was about a redesign. The original auth system was written up in 1995 by Pike.

Indeed, a date on the paper would have been really useful. It's frustrating that it's not obvious.

Why would it have been useful? The details of the Plan 9 system have remained the same: it's not web design.

It would have saved us this conversation, for a start.

It's not from 2013, which is why I didn't put a 13. None of the Plan 9 guys have had a Bell Labs mail address for like a decade.

The PDF metadata says 2007.
