Hi Dietmar,

It can be literally any permission.  If a user has any permission on a
pool, that pool will appear to them in the "Pool View".

Typically we will assign a user to a group for the pool, so if we have a
pool called CUSTOMER1 we will create a group called "CUSTOMER1_Admins" this
group then has the "PVEVMUser" permission on the "CUSTOMER1" pool.

This means that unless a user has some form of permission on a pool they
will not even see it in the pool view.

I hope this clarifies it.  If not I am happy to do a live demo of the patch
in operation.
