Sorry for late reply.

In UserManagerPlugin's context/theory, the team can contain:

  • users = developers/users that are working on many projects on the same trac host(1 user-X projects)
  • external users = non-developers/specific project users(1 user-1 project).

The only difference between them is the authentication method:

  • users - authentication made at webserver level. ex. against a AD/ldap/etc.
  • external users - authentication is made against a trac-environment specific resource, ex. local htpasswd. This type of users can access only one project.

Please let know if you need more clarifications on this issue(it's true that "external users" label makes sense only on some setups). I'm closing this ticket. Feel free to re-open it if more info is needed.

Hope it helps.

Thank you, Catalin Balan
