The first part looks ok, while -All:read looks a bit strange for me.

> The page "NetworkServicesGroup" looks like:
>  * User1
>  * User2
>  * User3

That's ok.

> By my understanding, users User1, User2 & User3 should have full Read/Write/Delete/Revert/Admin access to all pages in the wiki - but they don't ! All they get is read-only access.

Then something is going wrong.

Make sure you edit the config you are using (not some unused sample config).

Delete data/cache/wikidicts/dicts_groups (it will get recreated

The "before" acl is processed "before" that, so I can't make sense out
of that, except if you edit an unused config.
