i replied to this a couple of days ago, but it went to noreply address.

i'll try again.  i reviewed the patch and i don't think it is correct.
if you want to take authentication user from ruri, there is no reason to
parse from uri.  

i can take care of the patch, but i would like first to understand, why
publish authentication should be done based on request uri.  is this
because of third party publish or what?  normally the user itself (in
from header) sends the publish.

i personally check in my script that from uri of publish matches ruri
and thus to me it is irrelevant if authentication user is taken from
from uri or ruri.
