Agreed. My proposal was a compromise and I agree with you.
Well OK, but in your other email you seemed to be agreeing with Toni who was agreeing with you that there should be two options. It can't be both. This is a real either/or, we have to decide about this...!???
Sorry for the confusion. Because of a minor technical problem my first
mail - the one you just replied to - did not go out at first and I
needed to resend it later. My second mail on that day replied to Toni
and only when I wrote this second mail I saw his points. Please check
the `Date:` headers in my mails.
Do we have signaled as well as unsignaled papers??
Frankly I'm undecided in this point. IMHO both positions have valid

May be what could help a decision is to think about on how to "sell"

OK - for example, anyone who is an author or reviewer could access all the reviews and discussions for example?
Yes. Plone has a role concept built in and you can put a user into one
or more roles. This way you need to give access permissions for a role
once and everyone with this role has access then.
