    Definitely worth considering.

    I need exactly this for a project I'm working on. I'd love to be able to assign a user as "owner" of a post and have them only able to edit that content, nothing else.

    Wouldn't that be great? :)

    I work in an education environment, where Role Management Built In would be ideal!!!

    Murky wrote quite a lot, but great explanation of what's needed including:

    Roles: Admin (access all)
    Area Administrator
    Publisher (can 'make live', is notified of
    submissions)
    Page Publisher
    Editor (can edit, but not publish)

    For example.

    Admin could have overall control over the theme, plugins available, and user management.
    Page Publisher could be the communications officer, making letters available to students and parents electronically.
    Publishers could be Teaching Staff, with access to publish, moderate and edit content within their teaching area/categories.
    Contributors could be Students with the ability to produce content, which has to be moderated by their area/category Publisher.

    I'm currently using Role Manager and WordPress to achieve this, although "teachers" have the ability to post/moderate any category.
    I know Moodle is setup to do this, but struggle with the amount of additional stuff Moodle comes with.
    Wordpress is a simple, and intuitive way to allow staff to share notes with students, and to make comments on each lesson/resource provided.

    Previous comments made some very good points. I'm just adding my voice. Please implement a powerful user permissions system! I hope it'll be available in 2.9, if not in 2.8.

    Would be nice to ditch the caps/roles all together and allow for more complex access control. Compatibility with bbPress, BuddyPress, and BackPress ultimately would be really super awesome as well.

    It needs to have user access groups, with the ability to turn on and off every component of WordPress to these specific groups or users.

    I'm agree. I'm waiting for these features too.

    Please put this into the next version *pleads*

    It would just pull WordPress up to showcase its true use as a CMS and not just blogging software...
