You can clone with
HTTPS or Subversion.
I see that this is a common statement in the plugin:
$Sender->Permission('Vanilla.Discussion.Edit', TRUE, 'Category', $Discussion->CategoryID);
Now that looks right to me but I cannot get someone without admin access to be able to split or merge threads.
Anyone else noticing this?
This issue is still not solved. I applied both changes though a person other then first admin can't split/merge posts
