            Seems the project is now "Closed" source.
            Source code is now unavailable and forge doen'et seems to be available.
            Please remove "opensource" from the description and remove GPL a license, since as GPL user I cannot get the code.

            how do I set usage permissions for each group?
            I need to have two groups with different set of users. Users of each group should only view their allowed set of folders when they log in. Please guide me.
