Every time a new object gets created (wiki page, blog entry etc) the item recieves only global permissions.
It would help a lot if the admin could define 'standard permissions' for each group for specific features.
(needs to be integrated with improvements to "permissions by category" introduced in 1.9 - which provides a coherent approach for "object" based permissions to compliment user based perms.)
To keep wiki pages inside the group, the admin would assign the read right only to that group, and a member of that group posting a new item would not have to worry about security as much.
Am not sure what to do when user is member of multiple groups... maybe she can select in a drop-down which is the one that wins, or maybe the admin determins that when creating the user?
Reccomendation: Inherit permissions. (particularly for wiki)
The default behavior for a new object should be to inherit permissions from the page it was created from (global if none). Particularly in a wiki, this would facilitate the use of "private areas" - key feature for tikiwiki as groupware so committees. groups, etc. can operate in privacy, if so desired. Whoever create the page should be able to disable this inheriting, but it should be on by default. Admins can then create private wiki spaces by customizing perms on one page (the group home page).
