[GeoNode-users] Understanding group permissions in GeoNode

Hi list,

We'd like to create some groups in GeoNode similar to what Seno describes
bellow. One group that can upload data and fill the metadata but not make
it public. And a second group that will review, correct the metadata and
make it public. Is this done using only the group permissions? Or are there
some other things that need to be changed?

Also, looking at the group permissions in the administration panel, I got
lost. Is there some place that describes what each of the permissions is
for? Some are quite self-describing but, what is the difference between:
a) can add layer vs. can add layer file
b) can add upload vs. can add upload file
