Hmm, following the instructions here:


I've both changed the default roles in the ini file and changed the
existing rights so that the "visitor" user is only a "reader" for all
groups, packages and the system object, and is not an editor or
anon_editor for anything. But somehow, you can still add datasets to
no.ckan.net without logging in.

Anyone know what the problem might be?

I wonder if this is a bug in CKAN 1.5.1. If no one else has any ideas,
I'll look into it further tomorrow.
