#4827 new enhancement

TracPermissions to access WebAdmin should be more fine-grained

I stated the problem broadly, but really there is one simple set of permission that would help me out with 95% of my need:

COMPONENT_CREATE, COMPONENT_MODIFY (etc): access to create/modify (etc) components via WebAdmin, but no other part of WebAdmin.

Currently, I am giving far more users TRAC_ADMIN permissions than I am comfortable with, just so they can CRUD components without needing to bother an admin.

Confirmed that the following rules work correctly in Trac 1.0.6:


Replace the wildcard * with more specific user and group names, as described on the TracFineGrainedPermissions page.

The COMPONENT_* permissions may be added when #1233 is implemented.
