Description of problem:
I'm not sure about this bug either, but I found the wiki confusing. If I create a role with only Sync Product verb from Organizations as a permission, and assign it to a user, the user can access the menu but does not have access to the provider(s) and as such, does not have access to the products for sync.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  create user syncstatus
2.  create new role, syncstatus_role
3.  create new permission in this role, Organizations:Sync Products
4.  Assign user syncstatus to this role
5. login with user syncstatus and navigate to sync menu
Actual results:
User cannot see any products. Upon further investigation, user cannot see providers either, which is probably why s/he cannot see products. 

That said, I don't find the wiki illuminating:

There are many options in there for Sync-capabilities, but I only see one verb across all Permission sets for Sync - the one listed above.  I'm not sure I see a fine-grained way to provide all those different sync capabilities. 

Expected results:
Not sure.... if what i think the behavior should be is actually what it should be :P
