[pmwiki-users] Group passwords

I've tried adding "@_site_edit" to the group read password attribute 
field, and just for the heck of it, to the edit password attribute 
field. But it seems no matter what I do I am challenged for a "read" 
password when I go to edit a read-protected group, after logging in with 
a site-wide edit password. No doubt there is a simple way to do this, 
but I can't seem to find it right now.

My goals:

1. Set a read password to keep a group hidden from the public.

2. Set a site-wide edit password, that will let editors both read and 
edit the read-passworded group of #1 above, without being challenged for 
an additional password.

Can anyone explain how to do this?
