Currently they only check the current user, but plugins might well need to check for other users as well.

Do you mean TWiki::Func::isAdmin? Because in the core, these are methods on a user object.


while i don't really want to puritanical

I guess you mean you'd like to call TWiki::User::isAdmin(nameOfUser) rather than

my $user = TWiki::User::Finduser(nameOfUser);

now something in me thinks this is not necessarily worth it - the execution cost will be the same, and as a programatical short cut, i'm not sure it will be tyed often enough.

aren't we glad this is only my opinion?

No, I want to call TWiki::FuncUsersContrib::isAdmin($user) from a plugin. Currently it doesn't take an argument and only checks for the current user.


Summary isAdmin and isInGroup should have optional user argument
