Anybody know of a good tutorial showing how to use
Rails with web site membership? i.e. use a filter to
authenticate, store member info in session/cookie,
login, send passwords, etc.

I'm not aware of a tutorial, but the Model Security generator does
this decently.  I believe the new login engine has a decent
implementation of this as well, but haven't gotten around to checking
it out yet.  You could either use one of those tools directly, or
generate a sample project and rifle through the code to get  a feel
for how it's done, and then re-implement it in your project.  HTH...

Am I the only one to feel very uncomfortable with this abundance?
In the good old days, all you needed was 2 books and 1 core.

Why is a "basic" and vital feature like authentication not in the core?
And I18n? That blows me!
