Comment 1 Robin Norwood 2004-04-20 16:23:32 UTC
Nick - The problem with this RFE is this:

If we allow a user to move systems between groups they have access to,
then that affects other users ability to manage those systems.  For

User A has access to systems in Group 1 and Group 2.
User B has access to systems in Group 2.

System Foo is in Group 2.

User A removes System Foo from Group 2, and places it in Group 1.

Result: User B no longer has access to System Foo.

We could implement a feature like 'group admin' where a specific user
is given the right to manage the systems in a group, but that's
further down the road.
