Summary: I'm strongly considering removing Main.GroupAttributes and
PmWiki.GroupAttributes from the distribution. Any strong opinions
for or against?
Main.GroupAttributes and PmWiki.GroupAttributes were
originally created to prevent malicious changes to passwords in
the Main and PmWiki groups, especially for system and utility
pages such as Main.AllRecentChanges, Main.SearchWiki,
However, since all such utility pages have been moved to the
"Site" group (where they are locked against editing as well as
password changes), there doesn't seem to be a need to default to
locking the attr password in the Main and PmWiki groups. Removing
these from the distribution would seem to make understanding
passwords easier for new administrators, since only the Site group
would have any defaults set on it.
Comments and opinions welcomed.
