Item5943: TWikiRegistrationAgent should be in Main's ALLOWWEBCHANGE by default

If the Main web (or USERSWEB in general) is write-protected, new user registrations fail because TWikiRegistrationAgent does not have ALLOWWEBCHANGE privileges in Main.

Unless it breaks something, TWikiRegistrationAgent should be added to Main's ALLOWWEBCHANGE by default, in case new installers write-protect their Main. At the very least, a note or comment should be placed above the area where you set the access-control variables in Main . WebPreferences.

Marking urgent per Lavr, so that this gets seen.

Need to discuss at release meeting

Modified WebPreferences to support this requirement.

Closing After Release 4.2.4

-- SopanShewale - 11 Dec 2008

This was a mistake - admins require more work to do.. so reverting this in this release after listening complains from a few admins...

-- SopanShewale - 20 Feb 2009

I opened Item6223 to track the reversal of this change for 4.3 release.
