Well, there is no real indication of how a group is being used in grouper - so I’m looking for a tool to do so independent of use.  Now, of course, it would be awesome if grouper could determine the use of a group and show differences and either automatically exclude certain differences (due to policy) or other constraints - but I think this is a wee bit further in the future.  Do I understand you correctly?

This would work for ACL-like membership groups, but not for policy driven ones, right?

I was thinking (I know, always dangerous)…

If there was a grouper tool to show the differences of group memberships between 2 users and then 2 magic options (make user1 like user2, or make user2 like user1) - this would be a nice way of healing users who should have all the abilities of another.

Also, with the above UI tool, give me the option of selecting which groups to “heal” for the 2 users involved with checkboxes on each group.

I hope this makes sense and would be useful to others.  Maybe this has already been thunk up and in the hopper for some future development?

Thanks for your consideration.
