    2525 * '''Public''': all users on the host can control BOINC (i.e. attach/detach projects) using the BOINC Manager.
    26  * '''Private''': Only the user who installed BOINC or an administrator can control BOINC. Users can be allowed to control by adding them to a 'boinc_users' group.  When other users run the BOINC Manager, they'll get a dialog saying to contact the administrator to add them to the 'boinc_users' group.
     26 * '''Private''': The only users who can control BOINC are: the installing user; administrator; members of the 'boinc_users' group.  When other users run the BOINC Manager, they'll get a dialog saying to contact the administrator to add them to the 'boinc_users' group.
