      Description

      I'd like to use the blog features for private, semi-public, and public entries. A really handy way to do this would be to just 'tag' private entries with a pre-configured news category.

      For example, my http://laybyrinth.xwiki.com area has an added news category called "Rob's Dreams". Currently, I manually set access privileges for documents in this category so that only I can view them ("private"). I'd like to be able to set privileges globally for all entries (existing and future) in the "Rob's Dreams" category, restricting access as much as I feel I need to. As it is, I'm reluctant to start typing private material, because I'm afraid I'll forget to set the right access restrictions (or get confused while trying to set them – the access settings dialog is NOT self-explanatory). Ideally, one could create profiles in the access editing dialog ("private", "friends", "public") and select them optionally in a pull-down selector in the 'add category' dialog of the news categories editor.
