Don't feel sorry. Thank you very much for making it work.

No, the current roles file is just temporary scaffolding. But it should
not be moved to the menu file.

The menu file is "presentation" only. The "menu" is part of the view.
The roles are part of the security.

For example, it is possible to have actions for which there is no "menu"
item. but that doesn't mean they aren't valid actions. That's why the
role has to be separate.

But you are correct - the current "roles" file is not what we want.
