Ordinary user can't create an event - Perch 3/Events 1.9.5

Hi, I've given the 'Editor' role the 'Access Events' privilege but they don't get an 'Add Event' button on the Events listing screen. Only admins get the button. The only other privilege visible on the Roles screen is 'Manage Categories'

I had a quick look and I can't see the 'perch_events.create' privilege being added anywhere but it is required for the button to appear.

Could you post your diagnostics?

Line 9 of has the button requiring the perch_events.create privilege, that privilege is not in my perch3_user_privileges table.

Here is my diagnostics:

Ah yes, ok, that's one we've picked up on.

If you like, you can add this to your config.php file and it'll be added for you:

define('PERCH_PRIV_ASSIST', true);

It's not completely clear why that define is needed so I figure I'd ask... I take it there's an update for Events that is coming out that will fix this and that config.php entry is needed to enable the fix once Events is update?

Also, any concerns with temporarily modifying so that 'perch_events.create' and 'perch_events.delete' are just 'perch_events' so that Editors can create & delete in the meantime? Or does that violate some type of terms & conditions?
