We need to decide how, by default, we are going to restrict access to
http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=158353 proposes restricting
the enter_bug page on b.m.o. to people with canconfirm; a
counter-proposal says we should invent a new group.
This raises the general question: is our policy by default to have a
small number of groups on a increasing scale, like:
(nothing, canconfirm, editbugs, editusers, "admin")
and then fit each privilege onto it somewhere, or is it to create a new
group for each thing ("canenterbugs" etc.) and ask admins to join their
new users to all the groups they'd like them to have access to (either
automatically using the regexp or by hand)?
My view: I'm not claiming our current groups are the right names for the
"increasing responsiblity scale" idea, but I think the principle is sound.
