I've lost access to the administrators group on the forums. When Wil added me back the link to the ACP returned. After clicking on the link and re-authenticating I was removed from the group again(!)
this is our crazy sync code between amo and the forums. I might just turn off group syncing.
It syncs AMO admins with forum admins. So, the code works! Would you rather have group management on the forums be separate from AMO, or would you rather have a "Forum Admins" group on AMO which it syncs with? /cc jorge, amyt, etc.
I don't feel too strongly one way or the other, but having the Forum Admins group on AMO gets my vote.
I talked to Jorge on IRC and we decided to just separate the two and manage groups via phpbb. That's the direction we're headed as we move towards browserid anyway - soon the forums and AMO will be decoupled. Anyway, I fixed this in r104764 and oremj will be pushing it out today.
