docs on fine-grained permissions don't warn that groups cannot be used in authz file
|Reported by:||Owned by:|
Description (last modified by )
The documentation at TracFineGrainedPermissions does not mention the fact that group names used by trac are not automatically useable in the authz file.
As described on TracPermissions groups in trac's permission system can be created by simply assinging somebody to the group. So, if I "give" 'joeuser' the permission 'trusted-user' permission, I have automatically created the 'trusted-user' group. However, if I use 'trusted-user' in the authz file, it will be ignored, I have to use 'joeuser', or list all groups again in a '[groups]' section in the authz file.
This should at least be mentioned in the docs describing the fine-grained permissions, or, even better, the implementation should be fixed to also use the groups defined in trac in the old-style way.
