      Description

      For some reason, as admin I can only set certain people to be allowed to modify project and institution details. e.g. I can allow Katy to modify them, but the option isn't available for Olga or Wolfgang.

        Its because they aren't associated with a User, and these settings are on the associated User.

        There is a problem with this functionality. Flags to allow someone to edit projects / institutions are held in 'Users' table in the DB - these, probably, should be moved to the 'People' table instead (otherwise it's impossible to allow people to edit projects / institutions until they register their account).

        I wasn't aware of this difference between People / Users tables at the moment of implementation of existing functionality. So it's likely that it's a good idea to move these flags to 'People' table eventually.
