* Package name     : ruby-cancancan
  Version          : 3.0.1
  Upstream Author  : Ryan Bates
* URL              : https://github.com/CanCanCommunity/cancancan
* License          : Expat

  Description      : Authorization Gem for Ruby on Rails
 
 CanCanCan is an authorization library for Ruby >= 2.2.0 and Ruby on Rails
 >= 4.2 which restricts what resources a given user is allowed to access.
 .
 All permissions can be defined in one or multiple ability files and not
 duplicated across controllers, views, and database queries, keeping your
 permissions logic in one place for easy maintenance and testing.
 .
 It consists of two main parts:
 Authorizations library that allows you to define the rules to access different
 objects, and provides helpers to check for those permissions.
 Rails helpers to simplify the code in Rails Controllers by performing the
 loading and checking of permissions of models automatically and reduce
 duplicated code.
