    3 Trac uses a flexible permission system to control what different users can do
    4 in the system.
     4Trac uses a simple but flexible permission system to control what users can and can't access.
    55
    6 When a user first uses a system he/she will be able to do certain things.
    7 Exactly what he/she can do depend on which privileges you have granted to
    8 the special user {{{anonymous}}}.
    9 In addition to these privileges different users can be granted additional
    10 rights as soon as they login into the system.
     6Permission privileges are managed using the [wiki:TracAdmin trac-admin] tool.

    12 === Available privileges ===

     9role (''user'') named {{{anonymous}}}.
     10Assign permissions to the {{{anonymous}}} user to set privileges for non-authenticated/guest users.

    26 The {{{something_ADMIN}}} privileges are just shortcuts that can be used to grant a user all the ''something'' privileges in one go. Having {{{TRAC_ADMIN}}}
    27 is like being {{{root}}} on a *NIX system, it will let you do anything you want.
