What and why ))ShareUserProfile(( should be
Introduction (what kind of problem is this intended to deal with?)
Currently there's no way to transfer a user's profile data from one Tiki site to another.
Feature Development steps
Inter-Tikis user profile
At this step user data independant of the Wiki can be stored whether on the local Tikiwiki site whether on another Tikiwiki site, if the user asks so. If stored somewhere else, Tiki provides users a way to enter security information needed to get access to data. If stored somewhere else, TikiWiki's user profile section acts like a bridge to the place where the user data is hosted.
Interfacing with software other than Tiki
At this stage user data independant of the Wiki can be stored somewhere else than on a Tikiwiki site. This place can be about anything : Jabber profile, other IM profile, Mozilla bookmarks, Outlook profile (notes, calendar), Mozilla plugins, other web sites' profile (SourceForge by example has some personal data). At this stage, different information categories (like calendar, notes, bookmarks) can have a specific data host. This is the mature step. It should never be totally completed since there is so much software!

Security issues will become more important if Tikiwiki spreads since step 3 - Chealer9
