You can "access" any mapset provided that you have the relevant
permissions (read permission for files, read and execute permission
for directories).

GRASS won't allow you to select a mapset as the current mapset unless
you are the owner of the mapset directory.

If you just need to access maps from a particular mapset, you can add
the mapset to the search path with g.mapset, or reference maps using
fully-qualified names (map at mapset format).
