Restricted Authors – by iWriteCode

This plugin works fine with Gutenberg but it lacks an important feature in my opinion. When we select a restrict category to a user, only this category is added to the user and none of his children. It would be interesting to have all the children inherit restriction of parent. And when we create a new children category it automatically add the parent restriction.
