You need to set this in the group's GroupAttribute page
There is no other place to this, you can't do it in config.php or in
a central wiki page.
In the attribute form set each of the attributes (view, edit, etc.)
to the relevant user ids, like id:userA
or as a list, like id:userA,userB

On the page SiteAdmin.AuthUser you can also 'group' users, creating
account groups (different from wiki page groups!)
@editors: userA, userB

Basically you are creating a kind of alias, which you then can use in
the attribute fields (action=attr) of a Group's GroupAttribute page,
entering for instance in the 'edit' field there: @editors

hope this helps.
