h3. Why NediImport is not accessing directly the Mysql database?

NediImport is accessing the Nedi Web Server in order to run the request with CURL.

Drawbacks:

* it can be much slower than direct requests to the MySQL database (this is something we try to minimize in our code)
* Usually the web interface changes much more than the MySQL database between NeDi versions, then maintenance is bigger

Advantages:

* security/rights relies on NeDi itself
* if you already have access to NeDi, then it works without giving rights/access to MySQL
* it works for us because we don't have any rights to access the NeDi database
