[pmwiki-users] AuthUser

Dear all

I've been using PmWiki for a while, but this is the first time I'm
installing a site which needs usernames and passwords, so I'm using
AuthUser. I have one query ... (sorry it's a bit long)

I defined in SiteAdmin/AuthUser some groups
@editors - people who can edit all groups
@friends - people who can edit a certain group
@foe - people who can edit a second group
(in fact there are 6 groups, each with its own group of editors)

In local/config.php I defined $DefaultPasswords['edit'] = '@editors';
At this stage members of the @editors group could edit everything, but
no-one else could edit everything, as I expected.

Next, for each of the groups I went to each Group/GroupAttributes&action=attr
and put @friends in the edit field of the first, @foe in that of the second etc.

The result seemed to be then that members of the @editors group were
no longer able to edit any group.  Is this right?  Does one really
need to go through each group and put @editors (as well as @friends
etc) in the edit field?
