Attached are some permisson setting changes that should be made to the access, maintain roles for Sakai out of the box.
Along with this are the following permission problems:
- Remove the UM specific Dissertation permissions (part of the
bigger issue I suppose about how to package institution specific
tools for adding outside the Sakai out of the box build).
- Remove permissoins that were never hooked up (eg all the News
permissions) to avoid giving the user the idea they do something.
- Decouple Resources new permission from dropbox (if a role has the new permission in Resources, then that role can see all dropboxes, and be able to see into all dropboxes.
- Fix or remove disc.read.draft - it was originally meant to allow
instructors/assistants etc. to view/edit a draft before posting,
but gives the ability to see student reply drafts too. So it needs
to be disc.read.draft.topic (even that might be too open) or some
other mechanism to control who can see a draft.
