#142 Improved handling of groups

Core (214)

Two suggestions.

  1. Some mechanism should be set up to implement
    complex group rights rules. For example. Say I have
    three forums (A,B and C). Group 1 has access to A,
    Group 2 has access to C. Right now there is no way to
    allow a user who is a member of group 1 & 2 to access
    forum C without also letting group 1 and group 2 see it.
    The solution is to check for group 1 AND group 2, which
    is not possible now AFAIK.

You could make a third group, but that gets messy fast
if you need to do a lot of this.

This is sort of like a Role/Content system.

Role level groups could control the level of access a
person has. Content level groups control what content
they can see, but right now someone with a particular
role has that across the entire system.

  1. Group access rights should be hierarchical. That
    way objects and users inherit certain rights from their
    base objects unless specifically over-ridden.
