Employee Training Schedule and Materials Template — Seat Count Bug PLUS Security Fix(?)

This is a fairly popular "fabulous 40" template.  It also has a bug which is widely known (I’ve even blogged about how to fix it).

Sogeti released a codeplex project this week that fixes the bug (which is nice by itself, but not earth-shattering) but they also claim to have solved a much thornier problem: security.  The fab 40 template requires a very generous security setting (users needs contributor level access to virtually everything).  Not any more!  According to the codeplex summary:

"This template also includes a new custom workflow action which enables the template to work without having to give all users contribute permissions to the courses list."

That’s good stuff and worth checking out.
