It may be desirable to support editing of a topic without allowing to change topic-specific settings? For example, I may have an application that demands a certain view template, which I do not want somebody to change even if I want the user to allow to edit the very topics with this special view template. Of course, I could always change the edit and more templates to remove access to this feature, but maybe an access control setting might be easier?

Probably, but that's more of a rhetorical question than a bug report. Before even thinking about doing this, we would need a sensible meta-data model. Fields in forms, text in topics, forms in topics, webs, are all objects that could potentially have the same set of meta-data, including access controls. That level of refactoring is required before trying to do this, otheriwse we risk just hacking more hacks on top of the existing hacks.

Discarding this report. Please take this issue up in Codev.


Summary Should edit settings be governed by different access control than topic?
