Starting from release 2.1.0, GeoNetwork has a new metadata access policy. The old edit and admin privileges have been removed and the concept of reviewer has been introduced. The purpose of this new profile is to control when a metadata can be published outside or not. In previous releases, all users belonging to a group with edit privileges could edit the same metadata. Now, a metadata is only visible to its creator, to a reviewer which has access to the group owner and to an administrator.
