[GeoNode-users] importing private layer creates a public layer

If I understand correctly:

* you set a layer as not being downloadable using the "Set permissions"
form in the layer page
* the layer details page correctly does not display the "Download layer"
* clicking on the "Download map" button in the map details page you will
get that layer in the download zip file

If confirmed, it is a bug, so please file a ticket in github.

Having said so, please consider that even after fixing the bug (pretty easy
in this case) at this time the layer download permissions are honored only
by the GeoNode Django interface, and not by GeoServer:
