Does Plone support distinct sets of users in subgroups?

P: n/a
I'm not sure if this is the right venue for Plone questions, if not,
could someone ref me to a better one? The discussion groups on the plone
site are mailing lists and I'd rather not subscribe quite yet.

Does plone support distinct sets of users? That is, on a public website
running plone, can it be configured such that when a user logs in they
are allowed access to a subgroup's main page, get the subgroup's
newsletter as well as the main site's newsletter etc? So, a membership
account on the main site would allow entrance into groups they belonged
to. Everyone, that is each subgroup, would have access to the same set
of features that the main site offers, but would see their own distinct
version of each, managed by it's own admins. Say each subgroup had a
photo gallery and forum, each subgroups would be separate. Ideally a
membership in subgroup A would not preclude membership in subgroup B.

The plone-users mailing list. Highly recommended.

Why not? It's free, takes 1 minute and you can unsubscribe at any time.

Yes. There's a user-group mechanism.

That can be done with local roles on the sharing tab. See the link above.

I'm not sure about that. I guess it depends on how you implement the
newsletter. It may require a little customization or programming.

Use gmane.org: you get NNTP access to all the plone mailing lists (and
several thousand others) and it will subscribe you automatically under
its own email address if you choose to post (you have to respond to a
confirmation email from gmane before first time you post to each
newsgroup).

the nttp option. Thanks to both of you.
