Item2378: GROUPINFO needs a $allowschange format operator
Current State: Closed
Released In: 1.1.0
Target Release: minor
Applies To: Engine
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..
we need the same for the add new goup - presumably that would be a new format param on
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
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
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.
