Subject Re: ALLOW tag not working properly

Eric,

it is difficult to diagnose from this information.
If you have concerns posting more security related information here, you
might consider filing a security JIRA issue, as long as the issue remains
labeled as security exposure it is only visible to committers and JIRA
administrators and not to everybody on the user and dev list.
We should remove all this information again before closing the issue.

Material that could be usefull for diagnosis:
- jspwiki.policy file
- jspwiki.properties file
- output (html) from admin/SecurityConfig.jsp
- debug level jspwiki.log
- debug level security.log
- the source of the page that "fails"

regards,
Harry
