Finally obtained Drupal.org CVS account

Finally I was able to get CVS account on Drupal.org to submit my own modules.

This time I was able to fix all issues with new module Time Limit and finally got approval to upload it to CVS.

This module was developed while working on client's site who wanted to keep site freely available for user only for limited time. So basically, anyone who wants to show site content for some limited time and then force users to register - could use this module.

This module was developed while working on the website of my client, who wanted to keep his site freely available for users only for a limited time. So basically, anyone who wants to show site content for a limited period of time and then force users to register - could use this module.

For example, if it’s a site providing reviews for some product category: - User comes to the site and browses all reviews available - After 30 minutes he is redirected to a page saying, that in order to continue browsing the site he needs to submit a new review and register (this could be achieved with the help of inline_registration module)

Another possible use is to provide a 'trial' period for new users to browse the site and then to ask them to register and pay for the membership. The good point here - users do not have to register first in order to obtain a 'trial' role. They obtain trial status right after they come to the site.

This time limit could be easily avoided by a user, so this solution should be used for those sites which do not heavily rely on it, but I believe 99% users will not bother with clearing the cookies in order to get an access to the site. And I believe this module will be used mostly on sites with free registrations.

An important part – the search engines will crawl the site freely since they do not store sessions and therefore all content from the site will be available in major search engines. So in contrast to the approach with registering a user and giving him a 'trial' role, in this case all the content will be indexed by search engines.
