gynta, you're too active :)

description of permissions is on homepage of locus http://www.locusmap.eu/support/manual/permissions (btw. why deadlink??), because I think it's very important. On dokuwiki it will be hidden somewhere ...

anyway page is quite old and need refresh. This will be done into new version of homepage that we prepare.

Happy new year to all!

Wiki or manual I don't care. Important is that info is available and maintained with every version.
