Groups can be used to define fine grained TWikiAccessControl in TWiki :

Add your groups to this list and define new group topics similar to existing ones. Group topics must end in ...Group.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Think twice before restricting write access to a web or a topic, because an open system where everybody can contribute is the essence of the WikiCulture. Experience shows that unrestricted write access works very well because:

  • There is enough peer pressure to post only appropriate content.
  • Content does not get lost because topics are under revision control.
  • A topic revision can be undone by a member of the TWikiAdminGroup? in case needed.
