      Description

      If you set the anonymous group as subgroup of any other (for example a
      submit group) this don't work. Members of anonymous group aren't seen as
      members of parent group.
      The situation showed in the example, is real and not only theoretical. You
      can use it if you want authorize any new registred user to submit in a
      collection without administrator job.
      A patch will send shortly

      Hi Andrea,

      the registerd-only filter won't do, as anyone in the default scenario can
      register. If I register I'm still member of the anonymous group and then
      can start a submission. And you really can, tried it. You're able to start
      a submission. At the end this fails, due to other reasons. Same goes with
      workflow step groups.

      You can reproduce this. Create a collection with a submitter group and
      workflow step. Then add the anonymous group to COLLECTION_n_SUBMIT and
      COLLECTION_n_WORFLOW..
      Take a user account with no special rights and you can start a submission
      on this collection.

      Apart from this I still think that the anonymous group should be
      "untouchable".

      Hi Claudia,
      there are no problems because submit servlet is behind registred-only
      filter.
      In my opinion this is a bug fix that open support a new feature

      Hi Andrea,

      I don't think this is a bug it's a feature

      If you enabled anonymous submit via this you won't have a valid eperson on
      submission and this will and in my opinion should not work.
