After extensive discussion (see link above), it was to make the write permissions available per group more fine grained. Rather than just read-write, there will be instead read-annotate and read-edit (in most usages, read-edit and read-write will be synonymous).

The intended logic is:

  • in a read-only group, group members will still be able to create rendering defs and thumbnails for any object they can see.
  • in a read-annotate group, group members will be able to link annotations (and in the case of images, regions of interest) to any objects they can view
  • in a read-edit group, group members will be able to completely manage viewable data, including modifying and deleting it.

All existing read-write groups will be downgraded to read-annotate during the database upgrade. Future changing of permissions should be relatively quick, though it should should warned that once a group is made read-annotate or read-edit and links are made between users, removing the group read permission could be either difficult or impossible with data cleaning.
