      Description

      I've seen XWiki.XWikiAllGroup get out of sync: There are users in XWIki.XWikiAllGroup that don't exist, and users that exist that aren't in XWIki.XWikiAllGroup.

      It seems to me that XWiki.XWikiAllGroup is special. It should be treated in auth code as a magic word, like superadmin or XWiki.XWikiGuest, to mean "any user that exists in the DB for that wiki" (XWikiGuest doesn't live in the DB.. ).

      These "AllGroups" would still hold different members: xwiki:XWiki.XWikiAllGroup, xwiki_virtual:XWiki.XWikiAllGroup
