In their portal they want to host areas for each research group they sponsor.
All those areas will be under the folder /research/. A research group called
"Environmental Studies" will have an area at /research/environmental-studies.

Every time a new research group is added under /research/ they want asing a local role to users and gropus:

* Editor local role: Given to users and groups responsible for this area.

* Reader local role: Group of users with access to this area.


This package provides one content rules action.

Username / Group name
Identifier of the user or group to receive the local role in the current content.

is being executed for a folder with title "Environmental Studies", this field will
