It would be really nice if I could set viewing permissions for each of the sections when defining a role. I don't want
every role to be able to see every piece of info for a project. For example, I would like to set up a beta tester role
for my upcoming beta test. I don't want them to be able to see items like reports, gnatt, or calendar and I can not
have them being able to view svn. I basically want it so that hey can report and see issues (bonus for limiting to
just their issues but not a big deal in my situation), news, and documents.

Right now I'm looking at using a separate project for the testers, which is less then ideal. The chance of something
being missed or lost is greater.

As of rev 674, you can disable these permissions for any role:
- view gantt
- view calendar
- browse repository

Exactly what is needed.
Ie. an external customer could enter an issue that would be further
processed before assignment. Such customer has only to see whether
it is a bug or feature, no priorities etc and just a description
+ attachments.

This is useful. we had a similar situation on a project for my
company. And it seems there were 2 sets of permissions for each
part. one for action and one for view, that gives the flexibility
to be able to see a part of the site but not being able to do
any changes or do not view it at all.

The ability to choose which sections of redMine a user can see
was also brought up when I demo'd it to a group of users from
my company.
