      Description

      I have a parent folder with a set of subfolders A-L.
      I want to give users access to different subfolders.
      The only way to set this up is rather clumsy (described below).
      QUESTION: Is this the correct and intended way to do this?
      1/ i created a PARENTrole that gives access to the parent folder and denies access to the subfolders with website ACLs
      read only-selected and subpages-/parent
      deny access-selected and subpages- /parent/A
      deny access-selected and subpages- /parent/B
      ....
      deny access-selected and subpages- /parent/L
      2/ I created a Arole role for users with access to subfolder A (and one for B...L)
      read only-selected and subpages-/parent/A
      3/ I assigned the user with access to A, PARENTrole and Arole (and did the same for users on other subfolders)
      ==========================================================
      Whenever I add another subfolder, (e.g. M) I
      1/ add a deny /parent/M to the PARENTrole
      2/ create an Mrole
      ==========================================================
      Another issue: whenever i rename a URL on the site, associated ACL's become stale (is this a bug?)
