So while doing some roadmap planning for GoodForPoc's API, I noticed a few
things that were coming up that could lead into potential issues. One notably is
how we would handle authentication and authorization. There's the option of
using Warden, a Rack-based authentication (with subtle authorization
capabilities) for Sinatra, but we'd have to write a lot of this logic by hand.
It'd be nice to leverage the community's work in the land of Devise or OmniAuth
here. That plus adding any form of social login tool would also have to be
written by hand for the project.
Migrations and data loading is also done a bit by hand (though made easier
