Hi Luke,

Thanks for the information.  It’s a lot of great stuff I wish I had a couple of days ago :-D  I’ve since created a new library here :  https://github.com/xirdev/s3_xirsys

It currently adds user creation support.  However, I will probably add other features to this over time.  It’s mostly functionality that suits my needs rather than something wholly reusable, but if I end up adding a lot to it, I may make a proper module out of it.

What I’d like to be able to do is to create new users from Erlang so that Riak CS can manage all the storage and access data for each user.  I’m currently using Erlcloud to access Riak CS.  Does anyone know the best way to create users from Erlang (preferably with Erlcloud)?
