Sure, PmWiki will have no problem with this. Set the Admin and Mgmt
permissions to the actions you want in your config.php page. Then in
the group or page attributes you want, disable the Mgmt permissions
where you don't want them editing, and enable the Staff permissions
where you do want them editing. Leave everything else alone. You
probably want to go with AuthUser--as it is very stable and fully
integrated into core. It is easily flexible enough to do what you
Just ask if you can't make heads of the instructions in the
documentation on password management at PmWiki.
