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.)

Yes, that screenshot is quite old, sorry for the confusion :)

The permission icons appear inline, alongside the 'i' and '->' buttons for each person.

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.

Yes that's expected, just temporary until we have new artwork.
