Better AuthType default for canceling jobs #2272
It might be unexpected behaviour to some that 'cancel -U otheruser ...' does not require authentication as that other user. Perhaps there should be an 'AuthType Basic' for job cancellation in the default configuration?
Original bug report:
CUPS.org User: mike
No, because then you can't do "cancel 123" from the command-line without providing a password, which will be a) annoying and b) break existing installs.
Nothing prevents a user from changing the default policy, and we're going to stick with the current default...
