[GeoNode-users] Understanding group permissions in GeoNode

Hi Daniel,

I sort of got this flow working. What was done is to make sure that the
approving group (call it GroupApproval) is given all the group permissions
in the layer upload page, I set it through javascript to fill the
permissions textbox with GroupApproval. Also it is key to make sure the
Anyone (view and download) checkboxes are unchecked. Once the user has
successfully uploaded the layer, an email notification is sent to members
of GroupApproval. Since the Anyone view permission is unchecked, the layer
will not show up in the layers list even though it's published. Then the
GroupApproval member can visit the new layer from the link in the email,
review it, and finally check the Anyone view and download permissions so it
is accessible by the public.

Hope this helps!
