Thanks for the explanation - it makes perfect sense.


ps  Perhaps this could be made explicit on the PmWiki/AuthUser webpage.

pps I also want every editor to be allowed to upload. Is there any way
of making the edit and upload permissions identical (without going
through group by group again).  So to have a universal declaration
(say in local/config.php) which has the effect of copying the edit
array to the upload array.

So if you want members of @editors and @friends to have edit permission, you have to set the permission to @editors @friends (separated by a space). This allows you, for example, to grant the right to @editors to edit any group **except** the ForAuthorizedFriendsOnly group, whose permissions you would set simply to @authorizedfriends. If permissions were additive, that would be impossible.
