      Description

      I did not find a report for tracking of this issue, but found several problems

      It was decided to fully separate CONTEXT_COURSE, SITEID from COURSE_SYSTEM so that we can define roles in the fronpage course independently from the rest of the system.

          Now that the system context is separate from the site front page course (usually the course with id=1), is it intentional that there is no user interface for adding roles to the site front page course?

          I can get to that page by first checking the database for the course is=1 context id (usually 2), and then going to
          http://ourmoodle.com/admin/roles/assign.php?contextid=2
          but I was just wondering why is this "hidden"? I've found no other convenient way of adding "front page material editors" to our site than going to this "hidden" URL and adding them as teachers on the "front page course".
