Subject Re: [BEP-0003] Wiki install vs. upgrade
Date Thu, 02 May 2013 14:15:30 GMT
Every registered user should be allowed to see the Dashboard.

The Dashboard may be empty if the user has no permissions to see anything
else. Just as it is on a new installation with no information yet.

Empty should not mean a blank page, but one helping to get started, learn
more, how to request permissions, whatever the case may be.
