I figured that much, but I just don't grok how the permissions in  
Horde actually work.  Can you expand on how these work?  When would  
you need to create a Child Permission?  How do you edit existing  
permissions without locking  yourself out?  :)

I tried to add a Child Permission to Assign or Update, it tells me  
that "No children can be added to this permission".  If I try to add  
a Child Permission to Documentation, it offers "Assign" and "Update"  
from the Permissions drop-down, but then tells me that they cannot be  
created;  they already exist.
