I think AuthUser.php is now included in the core.
I had thought AuthTable showed the same information as action=attrib,
but it doesn't look like it. Seems to this non-programmer a
straight-forward job to turn the attrib's into a table.
Back to AuthUser. On the attrib pages, it shows either **** for an
classic-style password, or id:George or @GroupOne , which is much more
It will also allow you to add / remove individuals without affecting
others, and track authors more accurately.
Downside is that each person must be given a name and password, and
you'll have to update SiteAdmin/AuthUser for each person. And then
you'll have to stick people into user groups. (Each person can be in an
unlimited number of user groups.) But you'd have to do much of this with
any of the other methods.
