On 4.2.0beta1, got from twiki.org

TWikiUsers.txt is no more distributed (which is good, see: Item4120 - shouldnt we do the same to TWikiGroups.txt?)

but it is not auto-created either by configure nor first registration of users. So the registration of users fail.

I guess the fix is to auto create this file from the template on registration if it doent exist yet?

TWikiGroups.txt is a topic which lists all groups. It is a nice document to have in the distribution as it is and normally you should not need to tailor it. The groups you find in it is the result of a %GROUPS

And the form to create a new group is working fine. I do not see any reason to take this out of the distribution or making things more complicated by auto creating it. And when I upgrade TWiki - I would want the new version - as the new version may be smarter and support new features.

If it because you tailor it - then the list of topics we could do the same with is very long. ResetPassword, TWiki:ChangePassword, TWiki:TWikiRegistration, WebSearch, etc etc and then it is a quite different approach we need to take which should then be raised as a feature proposal on Codev.

I do not see any action required here. Reopen if I have misunderstood the issue.
