I guess I should read all my email before firing off new questions.
Experiments have confirmed that the @group syntax on Site.AuthUser
does not handle "-Fred", but setting the group password to "@Groupx
-Fred" works as advertised. Well, come to think of it, it isn't
advertised in any of the pmwiki.org docs I could find!
Being able to do "@Groupx: *, -Fred" on Site.AuthUser would be very
useful for centralizing password control, but the current modus
operandi is quite workable.
I will add some of this stuff to the docs so I can find it next time
I forget it. ;-)
