[GeoNode-devel] Separate permission to view metadata from view data

Hi devs

Could we have a new permission for 'View metadata' please?

It's a fairly common use case to make the metadata for a layer public without making the layer itself public. This applies to most commercial or otherwise restricted data.

At the moment, "Change Layer Permissions > Who can view it? > Anyone" means anyone can map and query the layer. In theory anyone could use this to reproduce the whole dataset, which defeats the purpose of separating 'Who can view it?' from 'Who can download it?'.

I couldn't find this as an open issue so I've added it as issue #3039<https://github.com/GeoNode/geonode/issues/3039>.
