Description

My Setup
I have file galleries set up with categories, so each category grants permission for a specific group to view and edit file galleries which are categorized to that group. E.g., I have a "group 1" category which grants the group "group 1" permission to access the "group 1" file gallery.

I have a "group administrator" group which has the "tiki_p_remove_files" permission granted in each category. This gives me one group which I can add to a user to give them permission to remove files from whichever file gallery they have permission to view.

Technically, the group admins have permission to remove files from all sections, every category grants them this permission, but because they cannot see the other sections, this is not an issue.

My Problem
Even having the "tiki_p_remove_files" permission, group admins are unable to remove files which they did not upload.

I have "tiki_p_remove_files" set for the "group administrator" group in global permissions but the issue still remains.

To do some testing, I granted registered (thus all groups) "tiki_p_remove_files" in the global permissions, and in the category permissions, but section admins (and normal users) were still only able to delete their own uploaded files.

I have a sym link set to my old tiki version, so I can access it via tiki-url/old. I used to this to determine that this is an existing bug, and not a regression. When adding the "/old" to my url, and going back to Tiki6, group admins were still unable to remove these files. The perms are stored in the db, so this would be a valid way to determine this correct?

This makes me think that the bug has been around for a while, as it was present in Tiki6 as well.

I cleared the tiki cache before each testing of permissions, and also cleared my browser cache (just to be sure) multiple times while testing this as well.

It makes it difficult to assign a single user to be a file gallery manager if I cannot give that user the ability to delete other user's files.

Solution
I am unsure how one would fix this.
