so that we can show/hide the add/remove UI as per the Group System's backend.

we can't just use topic permissions, because other mappers don't use topics..

similarly we need the same for the add new goup - presumably that would be a new format param on GROUPS

thus adding new api's to the mappers :/ (with the defaults being set to read only..)

set to feedback from the main mapper writers

unit tests needed: for allows change and for visibility / not based on ALLOWTOPICVIEW

$allowgroupview or similar might be needed to abstract the topic based permissions - none of the non-default mappers use the topic, and thus have a different way to manage who should see the group, or even the group members.

Sounds good. So this item also applies to all usermappers that are out there, i.e. LdapContrib

yes and no smile

So long as you inherit from Foswiki::UserMapping, you will get the default '$allowchange = 0' result.

my long term plan for HTTPDUserAdminContrib is to add cfg bit to limit viewing and changing groups - more inline with internet portals.
