Can anyone recommend a role/permission system for Ruby? We'd like something basic that we can customize to your particular set of users (which I guess would be true of any generic permission system).

You meant something like ACEGI Security that you used in Spring ?

On our system we have multiple users: clients, managers type A, managers type B, special users, admins type A, admins type B, superusers. They each need access to different parts of the system (obviously not completely mutually exclusive) to see things, and change settings.

I'd rather not reinvent the wheel if one already exists.

I took a glance at Acegi Security and it seems similar. We do have a basic login to the system, but the problem is it's binary and we need more granularity. We either need to suplliment what we have or to use it for all authentication across the system.

Is it a Rails system or something else?

If it's Rails, you should probably look into these.
