Forum OpenACS Q&A: usernames unique only within groups

Posted by Paul Gresham on
I would like to ask for assistance, we have to build a community web
site (actually we have two clients with similar requests). We would
like our users to create a group at the same time as they create their
account. That user would become the administrator of that group, and
to then create other users, who would be automatically emailed their
passwords. The usernames would be unique like and entry to a group is closed unless a
member invites you in. Both projects are colloborative and require
security isolating each group.

Is this possible now, planned, or does it simply have to be written.
I'd like a reasonable asessment if someone could provide me with one,
on how much effort this would be, and possibly where to start looking.

Kind regards
Paul Gresham
