Forum OpenACS Development: acs__add_user doesn't accept the context_id

acs__add_user doesn't accept context_id, although it invokes acs_user__new, which does accept it. Is this an oversight on the part of aD (same problem in original), or a feature?

I am interested in the answer to this. Have you gotten to the bottom of this issue?

I think the answer is aD didn't design the Oracle Package correctly, and the person who ported the package followed the bad design (which is ok). Being able to set the context_id for a user would allow you to divide users into separate admin groups. That is, it would allow some other group or person (party) to act as the owner of a bunch of user content.

You can still do it, but in a separate step.
