[Moin-user] acls

Hi Marcel,
I'm not sure if this answer your question, but I had a similar issue "but this user is not allowed to change page acls until I have created an AdminGroup including the superuser".
I solved it by adding the following setting in the wikiconfig:

acl_rights_before = u"WikiAdmin:read,write,delete,revert,admin"

where WikiAdmin needs to be replaced with your wiki administrator account.
This way you should be able to change the acls if you are logged in as the admin, regardless if the AdminGroup exists or not.
Hope this helps…

Hi everybody!

Setting up a new wiki (windows, python2.7.5, moinmoin1.9.7) there are
some difficulties with acls. I have set a superuser, but this user is
not allowed to change page acls until I have created an AdminGroup
including the superuser.

In the wikiconfig I have set:

acl_rights_default = u"AdminGroup:read,write,delete,revert,admin
EditorGroup:read,write,delete,revert All:read"

The result with a page without acls: the member of the editor group are
not allowed to view the page until I set the same rule directly on the
page. It seems that the wikiconfig settings are not properly
interpreted. I think it reads the wikiconfig because when I include a
syntax error I get a corresponding note.

Thanks in advance
