I'm basically looking to be able to restrict question asking privileges to a discrete group of registered users.

There should be an update soon regarding this feature.

@rickross That is exactly what we are looking for. I work for a school district and we are looking for a way for teachers to ask questions of parents. We need fairly fine grained control over which groups can perform which actions. So that teachers can ask and answer and parents can only answer.

The system is very robust in the sense that it is reliable and works, but I suspect you're asking about granularity. It almost sounds like you're looking for fine-grained control of the permissions, and you may be pointing to an intriguing direction we could establish for implementing admin control. The present (legacy) system has hard-coded values to check if a user has sufficient karma to perform an action. It would be cool to allow each type of action to be independently controlled by the site owner.

We are currently scouring the code to isolate and refactor these values. This may be the perfect time to rethink how the privileges are granted.

Would it be possible to do it so that even unregistered users could post questions and answers?

Maybe you would like to check http://github.com/lukaszb/django-guardian/ for django 1.2 per object permissions. Here is a project by the same author which shows how it can be implemented: http://packages.python.org/django-projector/index.html
