While we're working out the design and implementation details of the
role/capability system, let's talk about roles. Currently, we are using
Textpattern's role definitions.
In addition, we have "Inactive" and "Subscriber" roles. Inactive has no
capabilities at all. It serves as a means of deactivating an account
without deleting it. A Subscriber is someone who can login and read but
not do anything else.
The Textpattern roles are based on a newsroom workflow. Is that what we
want for WordPress, or do we want different roles using a different
paradigm? Many have suggested that "Publisher" be "Administrator", for
example. Any other suggestions?
