      Description

      SAK-43078 fixed the issue of giving the correct group contributor permissions, but the student role still has contributor permissions (which need to be set to none). As long as the student role has contributor permissions in a group forum topic, they can access and post even if they are not members of the group.

      See notes in SAK-43078 regarding the msgcntr.rolesnone property.
