Hi all,

A job that we are quoting for a client requires the implementation of multiple administrator logins with fine grained access controls - which is found in the enterprise version of magento.

Obviously the $10k USD per annum is pointless as we do not need any of the other features of enterprise.

However, if we were to implement that functionality into Magento Community Edition, would we be able to contribute this back upstream to Magento, or would this be blocked on the grounds that it competes with their commercial product.

If it is possible, where is the information on the process for submission (coding guidelines, submission guidelines etc).

Thanks,
Nik

@drak - this would not be blocked in any way. In fact, I would encourage you to make the contribution via Magento Connect for the community at large.
