support origin blacklist for archive search and browse
Open, HighPublic


In the near future, we may be requested to dereference certain contents, like it happens on, and we need to be prepared.

The first step is to implement a classic blacklist/whitelist functionality on the search engine we provide (currently, just on the origins).
It can be based on exact match, or on regex.

zack triaged this task as Low priority.
zack added a project: General.

The simplest approximation of this that I can see is adding a visibility column to the origin table, and tweaking that manually when we get a request.

Seems a nice way to go: we would also need some easy to use interface to
edit the "visibility" bit too...

This is an important feature: it has been dormant for a while, but we need to actually start implementing it.
