In Koha Staff Interface, Home > Lists, a professional user can manage
Public Lists and his Lists. But there is no way for a Koha administrator
to manage users lists. From time to time it'll be very usefull to clean
users lists which grow indefinitely.
I see a major privacy issue with this. I think it would be great to delete lists of users who have been deleted, but I don't like the idea of librarians being able to access user lists at all.

Good point. Thanks. And controlling access via Koha permissions in order
to control which librarians are allowed to see/manage lists of users? In
any case, even if there is a technical barrier, anyone having access to
Reports can see users private lists.
This duplicates Bug 5487, but since the discussion is here I'll mark the other the duplicate.
Librarians already have access to patrons' contact information and checkout history. I don't see how giving them access to patrons' lists is any different. My suggestion in Bug 5487 was specifically for a granular permission giving access to patrons' lists. If we don't want to give access to the contents, we should at least be able to edit the title (in the case of inappropriate language) or delete the whole list (in the case of inactive patrons).

Owen, if the patron chooses not to let the library have their circulation history then they don't have access to that anymore and I see lists in the same light.
Maybe lists needs to be part of the opac privacy settings.

History, maybe, but current checkouts are always known to the staff.
True. I don't really care either way, I just know that many librarians will care and many paranoid patrons will care as well. Since we have a mechanism for privacy, why not let patrons decide if librarians can see their list contents?
There is now a way to delete public lists covered by a separate permission.

We can close this bug now. See bug 13417.
