Mike, is it OK to bring food and/or non-alcoholic drink to this 
conference room at Hock Plaza?

Just a heads up. There are many things I'd like to work on at our 
upcoming Plone Jams. So many things, so little time. But there's one 
thing that I came across this morning that kind of excites me so much 
that I'm soliciting some help on it and it's the kind of thing which 
fits into the time frame of a single Plone Jam.

I think a user of one of my sites discovered a very obscure bug in Plone 
2.5 this morning having to do with Owner inherited local roles for 
groups in private subfolders of group workspaces.

I'd like some help confirming this bug across platforms and seeing if it 
also applies to Plone 3.

If I can get some third person confirmation about this to show I'm not 
misunderstanding what's going on, it would justify later creating test 
cases and then tracking down the cause and fix for this bug. I currently 
have a workaround but it's manual and involves knowing what to do when 
in a special edge case.

As obscure as this sounds, it actually fits a fairly common real world 
use case (a team of people working on some public and some confidential 
information). And so if it's a real bug, I needs to be fixed.

If you don't have a lot of Plone chops and that is scaring you away from 
participating in a Plone Jam, please come. Helping me confirm this bug 
is an easy introductory activity which involves things like running 
development instance installs and walking through short user scenarios. 
You'll be helping make Plone more robust.

See you Thursday!
