Thanks you for your response!
My question is slightly different than that.
Imagine that indymedia established a signed-subspace key, and published pages
"within" the subspace. I understand how to do that. And we effectively have
"GET / HTTP 1.0" functionality. But now I want to accept submissions over
Freenet, anonymously. Right now, indymedia accepts submissions using html forms --
so we need form variables, etc. or any other way to accept submissions over
freenet so that we can process them and then add pages *based but not identical*
to the submissions within our subspace. Any pointers on how to pull that off?
Are we forced to do something like pass to the submitter a key to use that
we'll check up on later?
