I guess you refer to the screenshot attached to the jira issue? Note the
date when that one was added, Oct. 15, 20*09*. Also note the artwork and
color scheme. I guess that was from an early development version of
Viewer 2 that already had the people sidebar tab but also still had the
old code of the contacts panel, so that both could be compared within a
single application. (That, or it's a mock-up.)

If you read the comments you'll note this isn't what Aimee has
implemented now: She shows permissions in the hover tips, it seems.

I'd still prefer to see all perms at one glance without hovering. Moon
Metty's suggestion to only display non-default values would indeed avoid
the cluttering and, more important, would also make these values stand
out. I think this could nicely be done with icons similar the maturity
rating and parcel permission ones in the navigation bar.


PS: why are you CCing to snowstorm at lists.lindenlab.com? That list
doesn't seem to exist.
