Forum OpenACS Development: Response to Permissions UI Issues

Posted by Dennis Gregorovic on
The security context hierarchy is separate from the site map hierarchy.  This is partly out of necessity since package instances can be mounted at multiple site nodes, and therefore not have a single parent to inherit from.

As for glossary_admin vs admin, if you make glossary_admin a child of admin in the privilege hierarchy, then you can provide the exact situation you describe.

I did not write/design the permissions system.  Just trying to clarify a couple things.
