Can you clarify functional differences between Method Repo namespace access levels?
Method Repository Namespaces have three different access levels: READER, OWNER, NO ACCESS. I am an owner of the broadinstitute_cga namespace. A member of the CGA group here at the Broad recently asked me to grant him permission to publish a method to this namespace. As an owner I can edit the namespace ACL, and so I gave the researcher READER level access to the namespace thinking that this would give the user write privileges to the namespace (since there was no explicit WRITER access level). It turns out that READER access level does not grant a user write privileges to a namespace...I had to grant the researcher OWNER privileges in order for him to be able to publish to the namespace. It's unclear to me what privileges READER level access grants a user...if I have READER level access to a namespace, does that give me privileges to run all methods under that namespace?
Could you please provide a clear explanation of the three method repo namespace access levels and the privileges each of the access levels confer. I could not find this in any of the on-line documentation.
