Is that a fair assumption? I hope not since I'm setting up a mail gateway into a non-public project where I want to use anonymous as creator of issue (--unknown_user accept).

Isn't it enough to check the actual checkboxes on the role to see if they are allowed to create issue (or see one)? Anon users will not be able to see things through web interface anyhow.

Older than devel versions allowed things "my way" but I assume refactoring on security-models tightend this a bit.

  • Subject changed from Role Anonymous seem to require public project to Accept emails from anyone on a private project
  • Status changed from New to Closed
  • Target version set to 0.9.0
  • Resolution set to Fixed

Fixed in r3195. You can now use a 'no_permission_check' option.
For example:

rdm-mailhandler --unknown_user accept --no-permission-check --project=foo

will let anyone submit emails to your private project foo.
