readonly_fields from auth admin user/group panel

since there is a field called readonly_fields
why there is no option to select from admin panel auth model user/group readonly permission, for example there is few users, who can only read data, without making any changes
there is a solution
I think CRUD perms are essential not only CUD

Adding the ability to have a read-only role in the admin is a topic that re-appears from time to time.

See the '"When and Why to Use the Admin Interface — And When Not to"' section.of for a verbose explanation about the target users of the admin app.

There are several discussions in mailing lists (see and for a couple of examples) about this and similar tickets that were closed (e.g. #820, #7150) on this basis.

Closing a a duplicate of #820.
