Description Gary Case 2008-06-17 23:21:49 UTC
Description of problem:
The whole group privilege "Should users in this group be able to create new
groups?" doesn't behave like a group privilege. It grants Red Hat employees the
ability to create new groups. It makes no sense to have it as a group
permission, because it seems to say that it grants you the ability to create new
groups within a group (which isn't possible). This should really be moved to the
Users > View User "username" page, as it should behave like the "Red Hat
Employee" privilege or the "Admin" privilege that are located there. 


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
4.6

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in to IT as an RH employee
2. Go to the Groups > (group name) > Privileges page
3. View the "Should users in this group be able to create new groups?" privilege.
  
Actual results:
"Should users in this group be able to create new groups?" insinuates that it
gives users the ability to create groups within groups, which isn't the case. It
creates groups correctly, but it has no business being controlled by a group
privilege.

Expected results:
A more logically located privilege (in Users > View Users "username" page) that
grants individual users the ability to create new groups.
