Description: Currently, if you want to give someone access to a page but otherwise leave the access unchanged, you have to retype all the existing passwords. This can get ... not fun.

One idea is use "++id:newperson", but there are reasons why that may not work.

Add Subtract and Group access to the above.

Since we have two different password concepts - user-based and user-less passwords -, I'm struggling with the same problem and would love to see an incremental/decremental password change option. As it is, I've got to browse through a lot of wiki-external files to make sure I don`t lock someone out accidentally, which greatly increases the administration workload. --Henning June 08, 2007, at 09:43 AM
